Homebound vaccination is available for eligible residents:
- Must be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine
- Live in the city of Toronto
- Cannot physically leave their home to receive the vaccine for medical, physical, developmental disorder, communication, behavioural or other specialized needs
If you are physically able to leave your home, you can book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at a City immunization clinic using the Province’s registration system or by calling 1-833-943-3900 (TTY 1-866-797-0007). Vaccines are also available at pharmacies.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, speak to your primary care provider or book a free phone appointment with the VaxFacts clinic.
Registrations for Homebound Vaccination
If you are eligible for homebound vaccination, please register through the health service that you are currently linked with. This is required even if you previously received a homebound COVID-19 vaccination.
- Primary care provider / physician primary care team: Primary care teams will identify patients, conduct screening and get consent for homebound vaccination. Please speak with your primary care provider to follow up on your vaccination schedule.
- Homecare and Community Service provider: Home care and community service providers will identify patients, conduct screening and get consent for homebound vaccination. Please speak with your homecare or community service provider to follow up on your vaccination schedule.
- Home and Community Care Support Services (HCCSS): HCCSS will identify patients with chronic home care needs, conduct screening and get consent for homebound vaccination.
- If you are not linked with any primary care or home care provider: Call Toronto Seniors Helpline at 416-217-2077 and select option 2, to find out if you are eligible for an in-home COVID-19 vaccination. The helpline can also help people who are able to leave their homes with information about transportation options to a City immunization clinic.
If you receive care through primary care or homecare and HCCSS, please contact your primary or homecare provider first. If your primary care or homecare service provider cannot provide the vaccine, you will be referred to Toronto Paramedic Services.
