Frequently Asked Questions

Which Vaccine Should I Get?

The first vaccine you are eligible for is the best one you can get. All vaccines approved for use in Canada have undergone rigorous study by Health Canada for safety and efficacy.

More information about the safety of vaccines in Canada is available here.

 

I'm Not Eligible to Get a Vaccine Yet. Why?

Like all jurisdictions, Ontario is working with Public Health Units to prioritize the roll-out of vaccines to those who need them most. Ontario's three-phase vaccine plan is in line with recomendations from the federal National Advisory Committee on Immunizations (NACI). Some PHUs may be further along than others due to local factors. Dependent on supply from the Federal Government (responsible for procuring vaccines from manufacturers) we anticipate that we will move into Phase 3 (General Availability) by July. As of April 29, more than 5 million vaccines have been administered in Ontario.
