Booking your COVID19 Vaccine
Confirming your appointment
If you booked your first dose online through a North York General and North York Toronto Health Partners clinic, you will be notified about your appointment time, date and location through our booking system by email or text. NYGH may also contact you if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
Getting your vaccine
Please bring identification on the day of your appointment.
Second Dose Appointments
Most people in Ontario will get their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine 16 weeks after the first dose. This allows more people to access the first dose sooner. Research now recommends that some people get their second dose sooner because of the high risk of severe COVID-19 and the way the vaccine builds immunity in some people. *In Ontario, the following patients will now receive their second dose 21 to 28 days after the first dose:
- Transplant recipients
- Individuals receiving active cancer treatment (chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy. Note - “Active cancer treatment” excludes those solely receiving hormonal therapy or radiation therapy)
*To book your second dose, click on the booking link and identify yourself as having a Highest or High Risk Chronic Condition. When you come to the screening area, let the screener know that you have either received a transplant or your are receiving active treatment for cancer.
