Individuals ages 18 to 49 in hot spot communities are eligible for vaccination, starting in Peel and Toronto. Upcoming mobile and pop-up clinics will be promoted locally by community partners and public health units. Do not book through the provincial booking system.

If you do not have one or live in a recently built neighbourhood, use the postal code of a shelter, library, or other community space in your area.

Education workers: You are eligible if you live or work in a designated hot spot. Enter either postal code.

  • attendees of a faith-based building (for example, a mosque, church or synagogue) 
  • people who live in high-risk settings (for example, certain apartment buildings, shelters or community living settings)

If you are 18 or older and fit into one of those groups, you may be able to get a vaccine at a:

  • hospital
  • mobile vaccination site (such as a bus)
  • temporary (or “pop-up”) vaccination site

If you have a high-risk health condition that is not on this list, you will be eligible in the coming weeks.
