Those who received a first injection of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine can now book their second injection after eight weeks.
The Ontario government previously set a minimum wait time of 12 weeks for people who take a first dose of AstraZeneca.
They can choose to receive a second dose of AstraZeneca or switch to an mRNA vaccine made by Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna.
People who live in areas where the Delta variant of COVID-19 is spreading and who received their first injection by May 9 can now also make an appointment for their second dose.
The strategy focuses on Toronto, Peel, Halton, Porcupine, Waterloo, York and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph.
The government is also encouraging unvaccinated residents of these areas to get vaccinated.
