Vaccination eligibility - As of February 23, 2022

First and second dose 
  • Children 5 to 11 years of age (paediatric dose)
  • Individuals 12 years of age and older

*It is recommended to wait at least 8 weeks after a first dose of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca. With informed consent, some people may choose to get their second dose earlier than 8 weeks for essential reasons (e.g. certain immunocompromised groups, unexpected travel for compassionate reasons).

Appointments for a second dose may be booked at least 21 days after a first dose of paediatric or adolescent/adult Pfizer and 28 days after a first dose of Moderna.

Booster Dose - 12 Years of Age and Older 

8 years of age and older

  • Available at least three months (84 days) after receipt of the second dose; individuals must be 18 years old at time of receiving booster dose
  • This includes anyone that has received a complete series of viral vector vaccine (e.g., two doses of AstraZeneca vaccine or one dose of Janssen vaccine), anyone that has received two or three doses of a vaccine not approved by Health Canada, or a combination of any of these vaccines and an approved mRNA vaccine.

12 to 17 years of age

  • As of Friday, February 18, 2022, youth 12 to 17 can receive their booster dose approximately six months (168 days) after a second dose. This interval may be associated with a lower risk of myocarditis or pericarditis. With informed consent, individuals 12-17 years of age may receive a booster dose at a minimum of 3 months (84 days) after a second dose. Individuals must be 12 years old at the time of receiving the booster dose.

This includes anyone that has received a complete series of viral vector vaccine (e.g., two doses of AstraZeneca vaccine or one dose of Janssen vaccine), anyone that has received two or three doses of a vaccine not approved by Health Canada, or a combination of any of these vaccines and an approved mRNA vaccine.

Third and Booster (fourth) Dose - Immunocompromised or High-Risk Individuals

 A third dose of COVID-19 vaccine is available for moderately to severely-immunocompromised individuals, as identified by the Ministry of Health, at an interval of two months (56 days), with a minimum interval of 28 days, after the last dose of the initial primary series. Anyone five years of age and older identified as immunocompromised by the Ministry of Health is eligible for this third dose.

This third dose is considered part of the primary series for immunocompromised individuals. Immunocompromised individuals 18 years of age and older can still get a booster dose (fourth dose) at least three months (84 days) after receipt of the third dose.

Immunocompromised individuals aged 12 to 17 can get a booster dose (fourth dose) at least six months (168 days) after receipt of the third dose.

Booster doses (i.e., fourth dose) are not currently recommended for moderately to severely immunocompromised individuals under the age of 12.

To receive a third dose or fourth dose booster, eligible residents must present a completed form or letter indicating their eligibility from their specialist or hospital program. Prescriptions for immunosuppressant medications as identified by the Ministry of Health can also be presented for third or fourth dose booster as needed.

Fourth Dose - Special Populations 

You can get a fourth dose of an mRNA vaccine three months (84 days) after your third dose if you are a resident of a:

  • long-term care home
  • retirement homes
  • elder care lodge
  • other congregate setting that provide assisted-living and health services to older adults

Booking your appointment: a step-by-step guide
The Town, in partnership with the East Gwillimbury Public Library put together this step by step video to guide you through the booking process. Please also see the steps below the video.

Preparing for your COVID-19 vaccine

If you have booked an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, you may have questions about what to expect. For more information, watch the below video or visit York Region's website.

Staying safe after a vaccination

As more and more residents will receive a vaccine, York Region Public Health reminds residents that despite being vaccinated, everyone must continue to follow all public health guidelines even after receiving a vaccination. Although the vaccine is very effective at preventing infection or serious illness, there is still a chance you can contract COVID-19, and it is currently unknown if you can transmit the virus after being immunized.

As more is learned about the protection provided by the vaccines and as more people are vaccinated, public health advice may change; however, until then we must continue to follow all public health precautions in order to keep each other safe, including:

  • Staying home as much as possible and limiting close contact with those outside our household
  • Practicing physical distancing of at least 2-metres with those outside our household
  • Wearing a face mask or covering when inside public places and when physical distancing cannot be maintained
  • Washing or sanitizing your hands thoroughly and often
  • Practicing respiratory etiquette
