People eligible for in-home vaccination:
- 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
- An essential caregiver who lives in the home may also be vaccinated.
If you are physically able to leave your home, check information about vaccine eligibility to find out where you can access your vaccine. Transportation support is available if you need help getting to a clinic.
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
Please register through the health service that you are currently linked with:
- Primary care provider / physician primary care team: Primary care teams will identify patients, conduct screening and get consent for homebound vaccination. Please connect 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 connect 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. For a primary series and first bivalent booster dose, Toronto Paramedic Services will schedule and complete vaccinations.
- If you are not linked with any primary care or home care provider: Call Toronto Seniors Helpline at 416-217-2077. The helpline is available to support homebound individuals determine eligibility 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-run 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 AND this is for your primary series or first bivalent booster dose, you will be referred to Toronto Paramedic Services.
