Ontario Adjusts Vaccination Plan in Response to Pfizer-BioNTech 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 been working together to develop a plan to accelerate COVID-19 vaccination of the province’s most vulnerable and continue to administer second doses based on availability of supply provided by the federal government.  

The Ontario government continues to be ready to administer the COVID-19 vaccine and expand the number of vaccination sites as soon as doses are received.
