Those eligible to receive a vaccination in Ontario’s immunization plan are as follows:

• Indigenous adults
• Adults who receive home care
• Health-care workers
• People experiencing homelessness
If you are eligible, you may now pre-register for your vaccine. Click here to book your appointment at one of the City’s mass immunization clinics.
If you are between the ages of 55 – 59 as of 2021, you are eligible to book an appointment a local pharmacy. Click here to book.
After you pre-register, your information will be sent to the vaccine clinic. If you’ve pre-registered with the clinic and meet the pre-registration criteria, the vaccine clinic will send you an invitation to book an appointment at the vaccine clinic when a vaccine is available.
Residents also have the option to book their appointment by phone at 1-833-943-3900.
Pre-registration does not mean that you will be contacted to book an appointment immediately. When a vaccine is available for you, you will be contacted through the method they selected (email, text or telephone). Please make sure to check your JUNK/SPAM folder in their email regularly.
Walk-ins will not be permitted. In order to get the vaccine, residents must have pre-registered with the clinic and received an email/call confirming you can come in for an appointment. Without a scheduled appointment, you will not receive a vaccine.
Residents need to bring identification on the day of their appointment. Clinic team members need this information to confirm they are part of an eligible priority group. For occupational groups like heath care workers, this can be a workplace identification badge, proof of employment or a letter from their employer.
Clinic staff take vaccine prioritization seriously. Providing false information may result in cancellation of the appointment.
Please note: Vaccine appointments will be booked based on the government’s phased rollout plan. Pre-registering does not guarantee a vaccine appointment at that location. To improve the likelihood of getting a vaccine appointment, residents are allowed to pre-register for an appointment at more than one clinic. If they are vaccinated at one clinic and receive an email for an appointment at another, they can respond by saying they have already been vaccinated.
Homebound residents who have physical, social or mental barriers that inhibits them from visiting a clinic, pharmacy, or primary care to receive the COVID-19 vaccination outside their home will be personally contacted via mail and/or phone call by Toronto Paramedic Services to arrange a vaccination appointment. You will only be contacted if you are a LHIN Home and Community Care client. If you are not a LHIN client, please contact your Primary Care Provider.
