When can you book your second injection in Ontario? – fr


Ontario hopes the majority of residents will be fully immunized by the end of the summer.

To do so, officials announced on Friday that they would allow residents to book their second injection of a COVID-19 vaccine earlier than expected.

Residents have been asked to change their second appointment when they become eligible if they wish to receive their injection earlier. If people want to wait for their already booked appointments, they can do so.

Here is a list of dates when residents are expected to become eligible for a second dose, according to the province’s schedule released on Friday:

Week of May 31: People 80 years and over can reserve their second dose.

Anyone who received Astrazeneca from March 21 will become eligible on May 31 at 12 week intervals from the first dose.

Week of June 14: People 70 years of age and over can reserve their second dose.

Week of June 28: People who received their first dose between the weeks of March 8 and April 18 will become eligible. This could include people with the most at-risk health problems and special education workers.

Week of July 19: People who received their first dose between the weeks of April 19 and May 9 will become eligible. This can include people aged 50 and over, as well as people with high risk conditions.

Week of August 2: People who received their first dose between the weeks of May 10 and May 30 will become eligible. This can include people who cannot work from home, as well as people with at-risk health conditions.

Week of August 9 to 16: Anyone between the ages of 12 and 25 can reserve a second dose.

Week of August 9: Individuals who received their first dose from the week of May 31 on a “first in, first out” basis. The government says the intervals between doses could be as short as 28 days.

Previously, residents were told to wait about 16 weeks, or four months, before receiving their second injection.
