Ages 12-17 Can Book Today, Appointments Available This Weekend

As of today, youth aged 12 and over across Ontario will be eligible to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment through the provincial booking system, by calling the call centre at 1-833-943-3900, or at select pharmacies administering the Pfizer vaccine. Pfizer is the only vaccine currently approved for this age group.

The good news came a week earlier than the City, which operates the clinics, was expecting, so we are hoping that it is accompanied by a supply of additional vaccine. Because of the added supply we received last week, there are still openings for vaccinations this weekend at one of the nine city clinics.

To book an appointment online, individuals must already be 12 years old as of the date of their booking. If you are under 18, you do not need parental permission to book a vaccine. For those turning 12 in 2021, you can book an appointment for a later date through the provincial call centre.
