Details on How to Register for a COVID-19 Vaccine Coming Soon Says Ontario Health Minister

Ontarians should expect details very soon on how they will be able to register to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, Health Minister Christine Elliott says.

During the question period at Queen’s Park on Tuesday, Elliott said all 34 public health units have submitted individual plans to the province’s vaccine task force to distribute and administer doses.

Those who wish to receive a vaccine will have the option to set up an appointment either through an online portal, a telephone booking system or through their family doctor, depending on which public health unit they live in.

Ontario expects to receive a more steady supply of COVID-19 vaccines in the coming weeks, and members of the vaccine task force said local units will be prepared to begin giving out shots as soon as they are available.

Phase 1 of the immunization campaign has focused on the highest priority groups, such as residents of long-term care and high-risk retirement homes. More recently, efforts have shifted toward front-line health workers and essential caregivers.

Retired general Rick Hillier, head of the task force, said this week that the province hopes to begin vaccinating adults aged 80 and over by the middle of March.
