Ontario FAQ

Vaccine Finding

Where can I find a COVID-19 vaccine in my area?

Click on your Region / Public Health Unit (PHU) at the top of this page for details on where to book appointments, visit popups, or access walk-in vaccine locations near you.

Where can I find the Janssen (J&J), Novavax Nuvaxovid, or Medicago Covifenz vaccines in Ontario?

The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Novavax Nuvaxovid, or Medicago Covifenz vaccines are only available in Ontario by contacting your local public health unit. Note: supply is extremely limited, and specific eligibility criteria may apply. PHUs with a known booking link or wait list will be included on their DIY page.

Who is eligible to get vaccinated?

Please refer to the Ontario website to view eligibility criteria.

Those who have certain specific health conditions may qualify for an accelerated dose schedule. Check interval & eligibility carefully on the booking site / your PHU page.

You can use our handy Dose Date Calculator to help determine when you are eligible!

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

Yes! Note that for the Provincial Booking System, if you have a red & white health card you’ll have to book via phone (though expired cards will still work on the website.)

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!

What do I do if I received 1 or more doses of a vaccine outside of Ontario or Canada?

Choose your Region / PHU at the top of this page, and see its ‘Vaxed Out Of Province?’ section for info on reporting out-of-province doses to your PHU.

If you have received one or two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not authorized for use by Health Canada (ie Sinopharm, Sinovax, Sputnik), you will need to get one additional dose of an mRNA vaccine to be considered fully vaccinated. You should first submit your proof of your out-of-country dose(s) to your PHU, and then bring it with you to a pharmacy / clinic to receive your extra dose. We recommend calling ahead to ensure eligibility.
