Ontario FAQ

Vaccine Finding

Where can I find a 1st or 2nd COVID-19 vaccine in Ontario?

See 'Appointment Options' section of your Region / Public Health Unit (PHU) at the top of this page.

Do I have to get my 2nd dose at the same location as my 1st?

No! You can go anywhere for your 2nd dose.


How do I find a pharmacy near me that has vaccines available?


Who is eligible to get vaccinated?

Anyone living in Ontario who is was born in 2009 or earlier is eligible. For 2nd doses you must wait a minimum of 21 days after Pfizer or 28 days after Moderna, though some places require 28 days for both. Check interval carefully on the booking site / your PHU page.

I have a red & white health card, or my green health card is expired before 2020. Can I still book a vaccine appointment?

Yes. Note that for the Provincial Booking System, you’ll have to book via phone.

I don't have OHIP / a health card, can I still get vaccinated?

Yes you can! OHIP is not required for vaccination, though some places still request it. Most pharmacies & local clinics will vaccinate people without OHIP, but you should call before you go to make sure.

The Provincial Booking System does require OHIP to book, but you can contact your local PHU for assistance.

Will I have to pay for my vaccine?

No. COVID-19 vaccines are free for everyone!

Can I get a 3rd dose?

In general... NO.

Limited 3rd doses are being offered ONLY to the following select vulnerable populations:

  • Transplant recipients, those with hematological cancers in active treatment, & recipients of an anti-CD20 agent. (Patients will be contacted by their doctor, specialist or hospital care team to arrange.)
  • Residents of high-risk congregate settings (ie long term care homes). (To be offered to these individuals in their residence... either within the home or through a mobile clinic)
