COVID-19 vaccine eligibility

Vaccines are safe, effective, and help to protect you and those around you from serious COVID-19 illness. It is recommended that you stay up to date on your COVID-19 vaccinations to strengthen your defense against serious illness.

In Ontario, for those 6 months to 4 years of age, staying up to date means you have completed the initial dose(s) of a COVID-19 vaccine. This is also referred to as the primary series. For those 5 years of age and older, it means completion of a primary series and receipt of the currently recommended booster dose.

How many doses you should have for your primary series and booster doses vary depending on each individual person’s health status, including their previous COVID-19 history, COVID-19 vaccine status, and age. Below you will find specific COVID-19 vaccine recommendations and see the Government of Canada’s recommended schedules by age, health status, and product for COVID-19 vaccines.
