Ontario expanding COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to those 12 and over as of Sunday
Youth 12 and over in Ontario will be able to get their COVID-19 vaccine ahead of schedule.
As of 8:00 a.m. Sunday, youth aged 12 and over will be eligible to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment through the provincial booking system and call centre, as well as at select pharmacies administering the Pfizer vaccine.
They must be 12-years-old as of the date of booking to be eligible.
Those who are not 12-years-old on Sunday can book an appointment for a later date through the provincial call centre or directly through public health units that use their own booking system.
The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine that has been authorized by Health Canada for use in those 12 and over.
