Schedule for COVID-19 Vaccine Booking Eligibility

As the next step in Ontario’s vaccine rollout, effective April 30 at 8:00 a.m., individuals aged 55 and over in all postal codes will be eligible to book a vaccine appointment through the provincial booking system at http://ontario.ca/bookvaccine or by calling 1-888-999-6488.

Due to a predictable and increased vaccine supply from the federal government, the province will be able to further expand delivery channels in the coming weeks to vaccinate more Ontarians faster. To support this, the government has developed an anticipated schedule to expand eligibility to receive the COVID-19 vaccine throughout May, with all individuals in Ontario aged 18 and older eligible to book through the provincial booking system as early as the week of May 24, 2021.

The anticipated schedule can be seen below. Specific dates will be further evaluated in advance of each age band drop and may be adjusted based on changes in vaccine supply. 

As of April 28, 2021, at 8:00 p.m., five million vaccine doses have been administered across the province, with over 91 per cent of Ontario residents aged 80 and over having received at least one dose and 38.5 per cent of the population aged 18 and over having received at least one dose. More than 88 per cent of residents aged 75 to 79 have now received their first shot. Over 368,000 Ontarians are fully immunized including 94 per cent of long-term care residents.
 
Ontarians who are now eligible to book their vaccine appointment are asked to be patient, as it could take time for them to receive an appointment. Public health units are responsible for managing and overseeing the distribution and administration of vaccines for their entire region, and supply may be limited at times as a result of high demand.
