Update on January 20, 2022
In response to recent trends that show a rapid increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations, Ontario is temporarily moving into a modified Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen that takes into account the province’s successful vaccination efforts.

As of Monday, December 20, 2021, all individuals aged 18 and over were eligible to receive a booster shot. Appointments may be scheduled through the Ontario’s booking portal, by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre, through Indigenous-led vaccination clinics, participating pharmacies and primary care settings.
As of September 22, 2021, Ontarians are required to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) with proof of vaccination along with photo ID to access certain public settings and facilities.
