Ontario Administers 8 Million Vaccine Doses

Published on May 26, 2021

Only 7 days after we reached the seven million doses milestone, yesterday the government reached another incredible milestone with over eight million vaccine doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered!


In addition, on Friday, May 21, Ontario hit an incredible new daily record of 190,129 doses administered in a single day! Today, the number of Ontarians fully vaccinated against COVID-19 now surpasses the number of total cases in Ontario. 


Youth aged 12 and over across Ontario are eligible to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment through the provincial booking system and call centre, as well as at select pharmacies administering the Pfizer vaccine. To book an appointment online, individuals must already be 12 years old as of the date of their booking.


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


We strongly encourage everyone to book an appointment as soon as it’s their turn.
