Youth Aged 12-17 Across Ontario Eligible for Accelerated Second Dose

Published on July 06, 2021

As the province enters Step Two of our Roadmap to Reopen, all eligible Ontarians will have the opportunity for a two-dose summer.


Starting Monday, July 5, 2021, at 8:00 a.m., Ontario is accelerating second dose eligibility to all children and youth aged 12 to 17 to provide them with a strong level of protection against COVID-19 and support a safe return to school in September.


To continue to protect against the Delta variant, our government continues to provide targeted supports to Delta hot spots, with 230,000 additional doses of the vaccine already provided.


Vaccines are the best defence against COVID-19 and variants, and we encourage everyone to get their first and second shots as soon as possible to keep themselves, their families and our communities safe.
