More Mississauga, Brampton and Ontario residents now eligible for earlier second dose of vaccine
More Ontarians will be able to book an accelerated second dose of COVID-19 vaccine starting today.
Those who received a first jab of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine can now book their second shot after eight weeks.
The Ontario government had previously set a minimum wait time of 12 weeks for people who took a first dose of AstraZeneca.
They can choose whether to get a second dose of AstraZeneca, or switch to an mRNA vaccine made by Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna.
People who live in regions where the Delta variant of COVID-19 is spreading and who received their first shot on or before May 9 can also now make an appointment for their second dose.
The strategy is focused on Toronto, Peel, Halton, Porcupine, Waterloo, York and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph.
The government is also encouraging unvaccinated residents in those areas to get a shot.
