Ontario will be able to offer the protection of the vaccine to more Ontarians earlier than anticipated
As we continue to fight COVID-19, Ontario is doing everything possible to get as many vaccines into arms as quickly and safely as possible.
Starting Tuesday, April 20, Ontario will offer the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to individuals aged 40 and over at pharmacy and primary care settings across the province based on available supply.
By extending eligibility for the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, Ontario will be able to offer the protection of the vaccine to more Ontarians earlier than anticipated. With supply of AstraZeneca available at this time, the expansion of eligibility will also significantly increase access to vaccines in hot spot communities.
Only COVID-19 vaccines that Health Canada determines to be safe and effective are approved for use in Ontario.
Vaccines remain the best way to protect your health and the health of those around you. All COVID-19 vaccines available in Ontario have been shown to prevent serious illness, hospitalization and death.
We strongly recommend that everyone to sign up when it’s your turn.
