York Region residents who are 70 years of age and older are now eligible to book their second doses on the shortened interval.

Anyone who already has an appointment can rebook. Any appointments already booked will not be cancelled unless a new and earlier appointment is confimed.
The region is just under two weeks ahead of the province’s plan to allow residents to book their shots at an earlier date.
Ontario will be allowing those 70+ to book their COVID-19 second doses as of June 14.
High risk health care workers, those with the highest risk health conditions and Indigenous individuals are also eligible for their second doses.
As of May 26, 70 per cent of adults in York have been partially vaccinated and 4.2 per cent have been fully vaccinated.
In Ontario, 66 per cent of all eligible residents have received their first COVID-19 vaccine.
