UPDATE - Vaccine Booking System Now Includes Those 75 or Older

March 22, 2021 - Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccine booking system has been expanded. Starting today, if you are 75 or older in 2021, you can book your appointment.
 
If you are 75 and over you can book online at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/book-vaccine/ or by telephone at 1-888-999-6488. Eligible 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
 
Ontario has administered more than 1.5 million doses since the vaccination program began in December, 2020. Depending on supply, the province has resources to administer 4.8 million vaccines per month.
 
“Everyone who wants a vaccine will receive one,” said Mr. Wilson.
