1 Million Vaccine Doses Administered

Published on March 11, 2021

The government has reached an incredible milestone: one million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines administered.   

This achievement is a true Team Ontario effort, with particular thanks to the incredible work of our public health units, vaccination sites and other health care partners. 

Ontario leads the country in the number of vaccine doses administered, and as we continue to ramp up capacity, we are committed to administering all doses received, as quickly as possible, to every Ontarian who wants a vaccine. To support this, the government has:   

  • enabled more health care workers to be able to administer the vaccine; 
  • expanded the number of vaccination sites in collaboration with the pharmacy sector and primary care professionals; and  
  • developed an online provincial booking system to be launched on March 15.  

With vaccine supply stabilizing, and over two million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine expected from the federal government before the end of March, the province will enter Phase Two of its vaccine rollout next month. Between April 2021 and July 2021, up to nine million Ontarians will be vaccinated.
