COVID-19 Booster Doses

A third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine offers additional protection against the Omicron variant. The rollout of booster doses has been rapidly accelerated in Ontario, and especially in Toronto, in order to help safeguard the province’s hospitals and intensive care units in the face of this rapidly-spreading variant.

Individuals aged 18 and over can schedule their booster dose appointment at an interval of three months (84 days) after their second dose. Individuals aged 50 and over, as well as all who have already booked their appointment at an interval of six months (168 days), can re-book for an earlier date at the three-month interval.

Book through Ontario’s booking portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 (for those with a red and white health card).

Please e-mail [email protected] if you have any questions.

Thank you to all for your continued vigilance in keeping our community safe.
