Over 20 Million Doses of the COVID-19 Vaccines Have Been Administered

Published on August 17, 2021

Ontario has reached another exciting milestone in our vaccine rollout – over 20 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered - more than any other province or territory. 


As Dr. Moore shared earlier this week, the vaccines are having an impact and continue to protect Ontarians against more severe cases of COVID-19, hospitalization and death.


We continue to make excellent progress, but the job is not over yet. More Ontarians still need their first and second shot to make sure they protect themselves and their family and friends from COVID-19 – especially against the Delta variant.


Thank you to every Ontarian who has rolled up their sleeve to get their shot! Let’s keep going and build the best protection possible for Newmarket-Aurora! 


All children turning 12 years old before the end of 2021 are now eligible to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Eligible youth will receive the Pfizer mRNA vaccine.
