Second dose appointments are getting fast-tracked.
Now that over 76% of Ontario adults have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and over 30% are fully vaccinated, the province has announced that second-dose appointments are being accelerated.
Starting at 8 a.m. on June 28, all residents who are 18 and older and received their first dose of an mRNA vaccine can book their second through the provincial booking system, at a participating pharmacy, or directly through their public health unit.
Ontarians between the ages of 12 and 17 who live in a Delta hotspot will be able to start booking their second-dose appointments this Saturday, June 26, starting at 8 a.m.
The hot spots include Durham, Halton, Hamilton, Peel, Porcupine, Simcoe-Muskoka, Toronto, Waterloo, Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph, and York public health units. Youth living outside of these public health units will have to keep their current appointments for now, but the province plans to accelerate second doses for this age group ahead of back-to-school season.
