General Eligibility & Requirements

The COVID-19 vaccine is free for everyone in Ontario.

COVID-19 vaccines are not given at the same time as other vaccines. If you received another vaccine recently (not a COVID-19 vaccine), make sure that your appointment is at least 14 days after you received the other vaccine. Wait at least 28 days after getting the COVID-19 vaccine to receive another vaccine.

If you have a fever or COVID-19 symptoms, please reschedule your appointment for a later date, when you are feeling better.

Learn more about vaccine use by age. Consult with your health care provider before getting vaccinated, if you:

  • are on medications that weaken your immune system – you may want to time your vaccination with your medications
  • had an allergic reaction within four hours after receiving your first COVID-19 vaccine dose
  • have severe allergies to any of the vaccine ingredients

Your health care provider will review the benefits and risks for your unique situation.

Residents without OHIP cards who meet the current vaccine eligibility criteria for their first or second dose can request assistance to book their vaccination appointment at a City-operated immunization clinic. Please note that once you receive your first dose, you must call again to request assistance to book your second dose.

Eligible residents who received a first dose of Pfizer, Moderna or an AstraZeneca vaccine at a pharmacy, hospital, or pop-up clinic can also request assistance booking an accelerated second dose at a City-operated immunization clinic. People who are not currently eligible for an accelerated second dose appointment may request this rebooking support when they become eligible.

Residents requesting assistance to book their appointment may be invited to leave their contact information so a representative can return their call, if a representative is not immediately available. As we work to serve residents as quickly as possible, we ask that you do not leave your contact information with more than one booking partner.

Residents without an OHIP card may use other forms of identification to book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment through agency partners. Government-issued photo ID (including non-Canadian and expired documents) such as a driver’s licence, passport, piece of registered mail, pay stub or student card may be used.

Residents without an OHIP card can also book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment through hospitals and Ontario Health Team-led clinics by visiting www.vaccineto.ca.

Everyone 12 years of age and over in Toronto is currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Two doses of COVID-19 vaccine are needed for complete protection. The interval between the doses is dependent on the vaccine you receive.

Youth 12 to 17 years of age should talk about the benefits and risks of getting the vaccine with a parent or trusted adult. Consent from parents may not be needed if the young person is capable of making the decision. This means the young person must understand information about the vaccine, why it is being recommended and what will happen if they accept or refuse vaccination.

Search the table below to find out where you can access your vaccine and when you can get your second dose:

  • Eight weeks after your first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine

Learn more about booking your second dose appointment.

Please note that Toronto Public Health is not providing invitation codes for people to register for vaccines or accepting requests for onsite workplace clinics. Toronto Public Health staff are not able to provide information about scheduled appointments over the phone. Toronto Public Health offices are not an immunization clinic and vaccines are not available onsite.

The Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccines require two doses.

You are eligible to book your second dose at a City clinic if you are 12 years of age or older and you:

  • Received your first dose of an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine at least 28 days ago, or
  • Received your first dose of AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD at least eight weeks ago

All residents are encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as they can, and to receive their second dose as soon as they are eligible to ensure maximum protection against COVID-19.

How to Book or Reschedule Your Second Dose Appointment

Second dose appointments at City immunization clinics can be booked using the provincial booking system and walk-ins are available between noon and 7 p.m.

Anyone taking advantage of the walk-in option to accelerate their second dose should cancel any existing second dose appointment, whether at a City-run or partner clinic. Walk-ins should always prepare for a short wait that may include time lining up outdoors.

Many hospitals are contacting people who received their first dose at hospital or pop-up clinics to book their second dose as they become eligible. Please check your email (including your junk mail folder) and the phone number you provided when you booked or received your first dose.

If You Received an mRNA Vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) for Your First Dose

City clinics offer mRNA vaccines and staff will ensure that residents are aware of which vaccine brand they will receive at the time of their appointment. The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are incredibly similar with near identical efficacy rates. Anyone over 18 years can safely receive the Moderna mRNA for their first dose or second dose. A “mixed mRNA model” – mixing Pfizer and Moderna for first and second dose – is approved by both the federal and provincial governments. Both vaccines have similar side effects. While Pfizer supply has increased, we encourage everyone to get whichever vaccine is easiest or fastest for them to access as both mRNA vaccines are safe, effective and interchangeable.

If You Received AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD for Your First Dose

As of June 17, 2021, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends that an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine is now preferred as the second dose for people who received a first dose of the AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccine. If you received a first dose of the AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD COVID-19 vaccine you can choose to either receive a second dose of the AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccine, or an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine for your second dose. Both second-dose options are safe and provide strong protection against COVID-19 and will count as a completed series. Individuals who received their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine are eligible to book their second dose appointment at an interval of eight weeks or more with informed consent.

If you would like a second dose of AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, you can book your appointment by contacting the pharmacy or primary care provider where you received your first dose.

If you are choosing to receive an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine for your second dose, you can schedule your second dose appointment at a City-run immunization clinic by booking through the provincial booking system (walk-ins are also available between noon and 7 p.m.) or at a participating pharmacy and select primary care settings where mRNA vaccines are administered. If you live, work or attend school in certain postal codes, you may also be eligible to receive a second dose of mRNA vaccine at a pop-up clinic in your area. All of these options are safe, provide strong protection against COVID-19, and will count as a completed series (you will be fully vaccinated).

If You Received a First Dose Outside Ontario/Canada

If you live in Toronto and received one dose of a two-dose vaccine outside Ontario, your first dose needs to be documented before you can book your second dose. Find out how to document a vaccine received outside Ontario.

If you live in Toronto and received one dose of a two-dose vaccine outside Ontario, your first dose needs to be documented before you can book your second dose. You can document individual COVID-19 vaccines or a full series in Toronto Public Health’s online portal. You will be required to submit proof of vaccination.

Some people vaccinated in Ontario received vaccine from what is referred to as non-Ontario stock. This refers to vaccine that was not allocated to Ontario or recorded in the provincial vaccine management system. Generally these doses were delivered at institutions such as correctional facilities, military groups or embassies. People who received one or two doses of vaccine from the non-Ontario stock may also document them through Toronto Public Health’s online portal.

People are encouraged to document their COVID-19 vaccines in the event booster shots are needed in the future and to help public health monitor vaccine coverage.

Document your out of province or non-Ontario stock vaccine

Wait times for processing out-of-province doses

Toronto Public Health (TPH) continues to receive a high volume of requests to create vaccination records for residents who received their vaccination(s) outside Ontario. Each of these requests requires a careful manual review and data input by staff and as a result, residents may experience longer wait times in receiving confirmation that their Ontario vaccination record has been created.

TPH is quickly processing and prioritizing these requests so residents can book their second dose as soon as possible.

How to obtain proof of vaccination

If you do not have proof of vaccination, please contact the health care provider who gave you the COVID-19 vaccine(s) to receive a copy of your vaccination record.

Need assistance

If you need assistance documenting your COVID-19 vaccine or if you are not able to provide proof of your vaccination, please call Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600 (TTY: 416-392-0658).

If you received a vaccine that is not offered in Canada

If you received a first dose only:

If you received a first dose of a vaccine that is not approved for use in Canada, you do not need to document the vaccine you received. Currently, only first doses of Pfizer-BioNTech (also known as COMIRNATY or Tozinameran), Moderna and AstraZeneca (also known as COVISHIELD or Vaxzevria) received outside Ontario will be recognized, consistent with guidance from the Ontario Ministry of Health.

If you received another vaccine, you are encouraged to restart your vaccination series to receive a vaccine that is approved for use in Canada. Find out where you can book.

If you received a complete vaccine series:

If you received a complete series of a vaccine that is not approved for use in Canada, you should only document it if it is approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization. Currently, only complete series of Pfizer-BioNTech (also known as COMIRNATY or Tozinameran), Moderna, AstraZeneca (also known as COVISHIELD or Vaxzevria), Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Sinopharm/BIBP1 and Sinovac–CoronaVac received outside Ontario are recognized, consistent with guidance from the Ontario Ministry of Health.

If you received another vaccine that is not approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization, you are encouraged to restart your vaccination series to receive a vaccine that is approved for use in Canada. Find out where you can book.

 

Who is eligible:

Adults 18 years of age or older who live in the City of Toronto and cannot physically leave their home to receive the vaccine for medical, physical, cognitive or psychosocial reasons are eligible for in-home vaccination. An essential caregiver who lives in the home may also be vaccinated if they are eligible at the time of booking for other reasons (based on age or caring for someone with certain medical conditions as per Provincial eligibility).

If you are physically able to leave your home, check information about vaccine eligibility to find out where you can book an appointment. Transportation support is available if you need help getting to your appointment.

How to register 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 and 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 to be referred to a clinician who will confirm your eligibility, conduct screening and get consent for homebound vaccination.

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.

Partners are working toward the citywide goal of administering second doses to all homebound residents by mid-August.

The Team Toronto vaccination strategy, which includes the City of Toronto, Toronto Public Health and healthcare partners, is working to expand mobile vaccination efforts to bring vaccines to neighbourhoods in greatest need. This helps increase access and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines among local residents. Mobile and pop-up clinics are brought to the attention of eligible local residents directly through community partners such as family doctors, employers, building managers, faith leaders and other local leaders who are directly connected to the people the mobile clinics will serve.

Residents in the identified hot spots must show proof of age and address when arriving at the clinic. Acceptable forms of identification include:

  • ID that shows who you are and where you live, work or attend school
  • Health card if you have one, but it’s not required
  • A document with your name and address such as a driver’s license, passport or work identification

Team Toronto Sprint Strategy 2.0

Starting June 10, the Team Toronto Sprint Strategy mobile and pop-up clinics are refocusing efforts to provide access to first and second vaccine doses in neighbourhoods with high incidence of COVID-19, low vaccine coverage and where the Delta variant has been identified.

Based on Toronto Public Health data, the Team Toronto Sprint Strategy 2.0 will concentrate on hot spot postal codes to increase dose one vaccine uptake, and to accelerate second dose access for people in these neighbourhoods to protect against the emerging Delta variant. People 12 years of age or older who have not yet received a first dose of vaccine will be encouraged to receive one.

In addition, all individuals 12 years of age and older who live, work or attend school in one of the following neighbourhoods will be able to receive a second dose at one of the pop-up clinics in their area, based on the minimum interval following federal and provincial frameworks:

  • Minimum 21 days after the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine
  • Minimum 28 days after the first dose of the Moderna vaccine
  • Minimum eight weeks after the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine

Postal codes prioritized in the Sprint Strategy 2.0 are:

The City of Toronto will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behaviour at its immunization clinics. The City is committed to promoting respectful conduct, tolerance and inclusion in all of its workplaces.

Staff are working diligently to help bring an end to this pandemic by administering vaccines that will protect residents, their loved ones and the most vulnerable people in our city.

Anyone who engages in abusive or aggressive behaviour will be asked to leave the clinic.

The Vaccine Equity Transportation Plan offers transportation services to people who may be unable to access or afford existing transportation options to get to their vaccination appointments.

Transportation through the City’s community ride partners is available to seniors, people with disabilities and others who have underlying conditions that put them at greater risk from COVID-19 and/or render them unable to safely access other modes of transportation.

This program is intended for those who have no other options for transportation to vaccination appointments.

Residents are encouraged to help their family members, friends and neighbours with booking their vaccination appointments and providing a ride to their appointments.
