UPDATE - Vaccine Booking System Open for Over-80’s

March 15, 2021 - Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccine booking system has launched. 
People 80 years of age and over can now book online at or by telephone at 1-888-999-6488. Eligible Phase 1 groups also include adult recipients of chronic home care, essential caregivers of residents in LTC of retirement homes, high-priority health care workers and Indigenous adults. 
First and second vaccination appointments will be arranged at the same time.
“Please be patient when trying to book an appointment,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson. “It can take time to access the system. Only those who are eligible, or helping somebody who is, should be making appointments in this first phase.” 
People eligible to book appointments will be asked to provide their provincial health card details, birth date, postal code and email address or phone number.
Until vaccines are widely available and enough people have been fully vaccinated to stop the spread of the virus, we all must:
  • continue to follow local public health advice and restrictions
  • practise physical distancing
  • use masks or face coverings
  • stay home as much as possible and only go out for necessities
The next phase of Ontario’s vaccination roll-out for people in other age groups is expected to begin in April. Depending on supply, Ontario has the resources to administer 4.8 million vaccines per month.
“Everyone who wants a vaccine will receive one,” said Mr. Wilson.
