Government of Ontario Information
Call the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900 to book an appointment or book through the provincial booking system online.
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.
