Thanks to a stable and reliable increase in vaccine supply, the Ontario government says it will be further expanding booking eligibility for COVID-19 vaccination appointments in hotspots across the province.

In Ottawa, that means residents who are 18 and over in 2021 and live in the postal codes K1T, K1V and K2V will be eligible as of Monday, May 3.

Residents who fit the criteria will be able to book their appointment starting at 8 a.m. on the Ontario government’s online booking system, or directly through public health units that use their own booking system.

“With additional supply our government is increasing access to the COVID-19 vaccines in the communities hardest hit by COVID-19,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “Continuing to focus on getting vaccines in the arms of those most at risk will help to stop the spread of COVID-19 in these communities, protect our hospital capacity and save lives. I continue to urge everyone to sign up to receive the vaccine as soon as it’s your turn.”

As well, starting Thursday, the following groups throughout the province will be eligible to book a vaccine appointment at 8 a.m.

  • individuals turning 50 and over in 2021
  • individuals with high-risk health conditions
  • people who cannot work from home who fall under group one (including remaining elementary and secondary school workers)
  • First Nations, Inuit and Métis individuals

Priority populations who have been only able to book via the provincial call centre will also be able to book online, including individuals with the highest risk health conditions, childcare workers in licensed childcare settings and education workers who provide direct support to students with special education needs.
