All Ontarians Aged 18+ Becoming Eligible for Accelerated Second Doses

Published on June 25, 2021

Ontario’s vaccine rollout continues to pick up speed, allowing us to provide more second doses ahead of schedule while supporting our communities most at risk.


Starting Monday, June 28, at 8:00a.m., all Ontarians aged 18 and over who received their first dose of an mRNA vaccine will be eligible to book an appointment to receive their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine ahead of schedule.


The government continues to take action to protect communities with the highest rates of Delta variant transmission. Beginning Saturday, June 26, at 8:00 a.m., youth aged 12 to 17 who live in a Delta hot spot are eligible to book a second dose appointment ahead of schedule through the provincial booking system, public health units that use their own booking system, and participating pharmacies.


Starting this week, provincially supported mobile teams have begun returning to community and workplace sites to support second dose clinics in Durham, Halton, Hamilton, Toronto, Peel and York region hot spots, with two pop-up teams and additional vaccination staff helping to accelerate first and second doses in priority communities in Waterloo.


Vaccines remain the best defence against COVID-19 and variants and we encourage everyone to get their first or second dose at their earliest opportunity to keep themselves, their families and our communities safe.
