Vaccination eligibility - Updated September 15

First Dose
The following individuals are eligible to receive a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine:
  • Individuals 12 years of age (born 2009) and older.
    • Individuals under the age of 13 require a parent/legal guardian to provide consent at the time of the vaccination. A consent form can also be completed and sent with the child to their appointment. The consent form can be found at the bottom of the York Region COVID-19 page
    • Pfizer and Moderna: Residents who received an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) should receive the same vaccine that was administered for their first dose, although you can safely switch between the two.
    • AstraZeneca: Individuals who received AstraZeneca as their first dose are eligible to receive a second dose at eight-weeks, with informed consent.
Second Dose
The following individuals are eligible to receive a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine:
  • Individuals 12 years of age and older (born in 2009) and have received a first dose mRNA vaccine and wish to receive a second dose at 21 days after the first dose.
  • Individuals who received an AstraZeneca vaccine as their first dose and wish to receive a second dose at an eight to 12-week interval regardless of the vaccine they choose (mRNA or AstraZeneca).
  • Individuals with medical exceptions for the extended dose interval, may receive the vaccine at the AstraZeneca product monograph interval (between 4 to 12 weeks).
Third Dose
Third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are now available for those at highest-risk and select other individuals. This includes:
  • Moderately to severely immunocompromised, defined as:
    • Individuals receiving active treatment (e.g., chemotherapy, targeted therapies, immunotherapy) for solid tumour or hematologic malignancies
    • Recipients of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy
    • Recipients of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T-cell therapy or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within two years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy)
    • Individuals with moderate to severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
    • Individuals with stage three or advanced untreated HIV infection and those with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
    • Individuals receiving active treatment with the following categories of immunosuppressive therapies: anti-B cell therapies2 (monoclonal antibodies targeting CD19, CD20 and CD22), high-dose systemic corticosteroids (refer to the CIG for suggested definition of high dose steroids), alkylating agents, antimetabolites, or tumor-necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors and other biologic agents that are significantly immunosuppressive
  • Residents of Long-Term Care Homes, High-Risk Retirement Homes and Elder Care Lodges
  • Individuals who have received two doses of a vaccine not approved by Health Canada

The Ontario-recommended interval between the last dose of the initial primary series and the third dose is at least two months (8 weeks) with a minimum interval of 28 days. The recommended interval for residents of Long-Term Care Homes, High-Risk Retirement Homes and Elder Care Lodges is at least five months (20 weeks) after the second dose.

EG residents who meet the criteria listed above should speak to their specialist or hospital program to ask for a completed form or letter to receive a third dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna). The third dose of vaccine will match the vaccine brand received for your second dose if available.

Eligible residents may receive the vaccine through their health care provider or at a vaccination clinic.

Booking your vaccine and after

Before you walk-in or book
  • Walk-ins are accepted at most vaccine clinics 
  • Appointments are available for those who prefer to book in advance
  • A health card is not required to book an appointment, except when booking through the Provincial Booking System
  • Both mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) are available at all York Region COVID-19 vaccination clinics with the exception of Cornell who is offering Pfizer only. 

Before you attend a COVID-19 vaccine clinic, it’s important you prepare for your COVID-19 vaccine 

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. 

Vaccines are booked by appointment only. Bookings can be completed online, one at a time. When booking a vaccine, you must select the location you want to go to either below or at www.york.ca/COVID19vaccine. To complete this process, you need:

  • A computer or mobile device with internet
  • A valid email address
  • A valid health card

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
