Just like other vaccinations, Williams hinted that you may need to show proof of immunization before accessing certain settings.
You may not be able to head into long-term care facilities or hospitals without PPE.
Ontario could also make it mandatory to show proof of immunization in order to gain access to a school as well.
"What may be mandatory, is proof of immunization or vaccination with the proper product in order to have latitude and freedom in order to move around," Williams stated.
The province also announced the creation of athis Friday.
The force will oversee the delivery, storage, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines when they are released to the province.
