Fourth dose booking to open today for Ontarians aged 18 to 59


Many adults across Ontario can book second booster shots of COVID-19 vaccines, starting today.

The provincial booking site is set to allow anyone 18 and older who had their first booster at least five months ago to book another shot as of 8 a.m.

Previously, fourth doses were only available to immunocompromised people, those aged 60 and older, and Indigenous people.

Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore is signalling that people who don’t have underlying health conditions may choose to wait for the fall, when it’s hoped that vaccines specifically targeting the Omicron variant will become available.

He says Ontarians should speak with their health-care provider about whether a fourth dose is right for them.

Moore says it is recommended that people wait at least three months after a COVID-19 infection to get a booster shot.
