Third COVID-19 vaccine doses: Who is eligible in Ontario and how can they get one? – CTV

TORONTO — As Ontario edges closer to its goal of having 90 per cent of eligible residents fully vaccinated, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has been administering third doses to select populations.

The Ministry is underlining that two doses represent a complete vaccine series and provide strong protection against the virus, including the Delta variant, but are also advising that “for some populations, a third dose may be required as two doses may not provide sufficient protection.”

In August, the MOH began offering third doses to select vulnerable communities. Last month, they expanded that criteria

An interval of at least two months or eight weeks between the second and third dose is recommended for those eligible.
