Ontario’s rollout for third COVID-19 doses is ramping up across the province, and eligibility has officially been extended to those aged 18 and up.
Beginning Monday morning, anyone over the age of 18 who is three months past their second dose is eligible to book their third dose appointment. The province is working to expand capacity to accommodate as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, in light of the Omicron variant.
People can book their appointments through the province’s vaccine portal, at local vaccination clinics or at participating pharmacies. If you struggle to get through on any of the websites, you can call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1‑833‑943‑3900.

As millions of Ontarians are now eligible for third doses, and mass vaccination clinics are still in the process of reactivating, the initial rollout may be slow. Check back in the evening to see if more appointments have been added.
