85 per cent of Ontarians 12+ have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine

Published on September 20, 2021

The government has reached yet another incredible milestone in Ontario vaccine rollout – over 85 per cent of Ontarians aged 12 and over have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

 

Unvaccinated individuals are 24 times more likely to be hospitalized and 43 times more likely to be in ICU, than fully vaccinated Ontarians. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect ourselves and our loved ones from COVID-19 and the Delta variant. As the province continues to confront the fourth wave driven by the Delta variant, we are requiring Ontarians to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of their vaccination status to access certain businesses and settings starting September 22, 2021.

 

We continue to encourage all Ontarians to support family and friends who may need assistance. Together, we can ensure that even more Ontarians benefit from the protection against COVID-19 and variants offered by all Health Canada approved vaccines.
