Over two million Ontarians have received their booster dose

Published on December 21, 2021

The government has reached an incredible milestone in our COVID-19 vaccine rollout – over two million Ontarians have received their booster dose!


We are pleased to see so many people embrace the opportunity to ensure strong protection against the Omicron variant with over 206,000 appointments booked yesterday through the provincial booking system alone.


This is a true Team Ontario effort, and together with public health units, hospitals, pharmacists, primary care providers and other health care provides, the province recently doubled its vaccination capacity to get as many vaccines into arms as possible. Over 206,000 doses were administered yesterday, with the province continuing to ramp up to administer 300,000 doses per day in the coming days.


As we continue to increase our daily capacity, York Public Health and other public health units are actively working to add appointments to the booking system on an ongoing basis. We also encourage everyone in Newmarket-Aurora to check regularly for availability through other channels such as pharmacies, primary care settings, and walk-in clinics.


Vaccine appointments can be booked online at York Public Health COVID-19 Vaccination Site or by calling 1-877-464-9675.
