If six months have gone after their second shot, individuals aged 50 and up in Ontario can arrange COVID-19 booster treatments starting today.
At 8:00 a.m., the provincial vaccine booking portal will be open for appointments.
Shots can also be scheduled over the phone, through local public health departments’ own scheduling systems, and at select pharmacies and primary care clinics.
Booster eligibility will open up to all adults on Jan. 4 but the province’s top doctor has said the schedule could move faster if capacity allows.
Today is also the deadline for long-term care workers in the province to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Staff, students and volunteers can’t enter long-term care homes without proof of both doses.
