Vaccination Information

This week, the Government of Ontario announced updates to their projections for the provincial vaccine rollout. As of May 24th, all eligible individuals over the age of 18 will be able to book a vaccine. Due to an increase in supply arriving in the month of May, the province is projecting a massive boost in availability for vaccine appointments for all Ontarians.

You can book an appointment using the Ontario COVID-19 vaccination portal or by calling 1-833-943-3900.

Beginning the week of May 31st, youth ages 12 – 17 will be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine and can book an appointment using the above provincial vaccination portal.

If you or someone you know needs help with transportation to an appointment, you can click here for options to help organize a ride. See below for further details on access to vaccines and a variety of clinic options.

There is a lot of information out there, and the many options can be confusing to navigate. Please reach out to our Membership and Information line at 647-426-3220 or contactus@cltoronto.ca if you have any further questions.
