Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to protect you and those around you from serious illnesses like COVID-19.
Vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. This can reduce your risk of developing COVID-19 and make your symptoms milder if you do get it.
Ontario and Canada's supply will not arrive all at once, so distribution will happen in stages. The goal is for everyone is to be able to get a COVID-19 vaccination if they want one, as soon as enough doses are available from manufacturers.
