Youth Vaccination Information
Youth aged 12 and over across Ontario are eligible to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment through the provincial booking system online or by calling 1-833-943-3900, as well as at select pharmacies administering the Pfizer vaccine. To book an appointment online, these individuals must already be 12 years old as of the date of their booking.
The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine that has been authorized by Health Canada for use in individuals aged 12 and over. In addition, the province is encouraging eligible family members who have not received a vaccine to attend these clinics to get youth and their families vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Government of Ontario Information
To help your child and your family to make an informed decision, the Government of Ontario has developed a fact sheet based on expert medical advice and scientific information. It covers several key areas including:
- Safety of the vaccine for youth
- Why vaccination is important
- Effectiveness of the vaccine for youth
The government has also created a dedicated webpage that outlines how to book and prepare for your child’s vaccination appointment. It provides information about the province’s current plan for youth vaccinations, answers key questions around safety and effectiveness, and provides links to external sites for more information.
