Accelerated Vaccine Rollout to include Ages 55+ Starting April 30

Due to a predictable and increased vaccine supply from the federal government, we 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 individuals aged 18 and older eligible to book through the provincial booking system as early as the week of May 24, 2021.

Effective April 30, at 8:00 a.m., individuals aged 55 and over across the province are eligible to book a appointment through the provincial booking system. This same day, a pilot will launch through select pharmacy locations in hot spot communities to administer the Pfizer vaccine to individuals aged 55 and over. This is expected to expand to additional public health units later in May following evaluation of the program and as supply allows.
