March Update 2021

Safe and effective vaccines will help protect us from COVID-19.

The Province has a three-phase distribution plan to ensure we are prepared to receive, store and administer vaccines as soon as they are available. The program is currently in phase one.

Ontario’s online registration system and customer service desk will launch on March 15, 2021, more information is forthcoming. 

Adults 80 years and older will be the first able to register a vaccination appointment.

  • Adults 75 to 79 years old will be able to register in April 2021
  • Adults 70 to 74 years old will be able to register in May 2021
  • Adults 65 to 69 years old will be able to register in June 2021
  • Adults 60 years and older will be able to register in July 2021

This registration system will continue depending on the availability of vaccines.

Registrants will be asked to input their postal code and will be matched with the closest vaccination site. Over the coming months, more sites are being added to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible.
