First dose eligibility
Individuals 5 years of age and older can receive a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
Everyone aged 29 and over can receive either Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty or Moderna Spikevax. These 2 mRNA vaccines can be safely interchanged.
Second dose eligibility
The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) and Ontario Ministry of Health recommend an optimal interval of 8 weeks (56 days) between first and second doses of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series (Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty or Moderna Spikevax). According to NACI, there is emerging evidence that longer intervals between the first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines result in more robust and durable immune response and higher vaccine effectiveness. Public Health will administer second doses 8 weeks (56 days) following administration of a first dose, with limited exceptions.
Third dose eligibility
The Government of Ontario recommends a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to restore protection that may have decreased over time to a level for the following individuals:
Fourth dose eligibility
The Ontario Government is expanding eligibility for fourth doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to individuals aged 60 and over as well as First Nation, Inuit, and Métis individuals and their non-Indigenous household members aged 18 and over starting April 7, 2022. Local planning efforts are underway and Public Health is working diligently to make more opportunities available for vaccination in our communities to meet increased demand. Details about how to book, availability, and eligibility are available online and will continue to be updated.
