Ontario Adjusts Vaccination Plan Due to Pfizer-BioNTech Shipment Delays - Jan 25/21

On January 19, 2021 the federal government notified the province of further reductions in Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine shipments. 

In response to the significant reduction in allocations by the federal government as well as significant uncertainty regarding future shipments, the province and vaccination sites have worked together to develop a plan to accelerate vaccination of the province’s most vulnerable. Second doses will continue to be administered based on availability of supply provided by the federal government.

Th Ontario government remains ready to administer COVID-19 vaccines and expand the number of vaccination sites as soon as doses are received from the federal government.
