COVID-19 vaccines

About the COVID-19 vaccine and where to get the vaccine.

Health Canada evaluates, licenses, and approves the COVID-19 vaccines for use in Canada.

COVID-19 vaccines are available to anyone 6 months or older in Ontario for free, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. You do not need an Ontario health card to get the vaccine.

Ontario’s spring 2024 COVID-19 vaccine campaign

The following groups of individuals who are at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 are recommended to receive an additional dose of a COVID-19 vaccine this spring:

Eligible individuals may receive a COVID-19 vaccine if it has been 6 months since their last dose or confirmed COVID-19 infection.

Anyone outside of these groups may choose to receive a dose if it’s recommended from a health care provider or if starting or completing an initial vaccination series.

All others are not currently recommended to receive a COVID-19 vaccine dose this spring and should wait until further recommendations are available closer to fall 2024.

For more information go to Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccine website.
