Are you eligible for a Third Dose of COVID vaccine?

The following individuals can be offered a booster dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, effective locally on Thursday, November 4, 2021:

  • Individuals 70 years of age and older who received their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months ago.
  • First Nations, Inuit, and Métis adults, including non-Indigenous household members, who received their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months ago.
  • Health care workers who received their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months ago.
  • Individuals who received 2 doses of the AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months ago.
  • Individuals who received 1 dose of the Janssen/ Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months ago.

Continued eligibility for a third dose of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine

Vulnerable older adults in congregate settings continue to be eligible for a third dose to boost their immune response. The recommendation is now that the booster dose be received 6 months following their second dose.

For some populations, for example, those who are moderately to severely immunocompromised, a third dose may be required in the primary series as two doses may not provide sufficient protection. These individuals continue to be eligible to receive a third dose as part of their primary series, at least 8 weeks following their second dose.

Book online through the provincial booking portal

Starting Saturday, November 6, 2021, those eligible for a booster dose of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine can visit covid-19.ontario.ca/book-vaccine to book an appointment through the provincial booking portal.

Pharmacies and primary care also offer a booster dose of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine

With many pharmacies and primary care providers offering COVID-19 vaccination, there are even more options available to receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Eligible individuals are encouraged to contact their local pharmacy or primary care provider for additional information on a booster dose of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.

Walk-in for a booster dose

Though booking an appointment is recommended, walk-ins for a booster dose will be accepted at Public Health pop-up and walk-in clinics. Starting Thursday, November 4, 2021, those who meet eligibility criteria for a booster dose of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine will be eligible to walk-in to a Public Health clinic, 1 hour after the clinic start time. If you choose to attend a walk-in to receive a booster dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, please note that you may experience longer wait times and Public Health encourages booking an appointment.
