Anyone 18 years of age or older whose second dose was at least 84 days (three months) ago is eligible for a booster vaccine. Everyone aged 5 and older is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Children must be at least 5 years old at the time of vaccination.

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 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. 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, you will be referred to Toronto Paramedic Services.
