COVID-19 vaccine eligibility

Vaccines are safe, effective, and help to protect you and those around you from serious COVID-19 illness and 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. For those 5 years of age and older, it means completion of a primary series and receipt of a booster (monovalent or bivalent) on or after September 1, 2022. For specific high-risk populations, staying up to date means completion of the primary series and receipt of a booster dose within the last 6 months.

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