Youths in Ontario eligible to move up second COVID vaccine doses next week

All Ontario youth can move up their second COVID-19 vaccine doses next week.

The change takes effect on Monday at 8 a.m.

Youth aged 12 to 17 can move up their appointments through the provincial booking system, pharmacies or local public health units.

Vaccines are initially booked four months apart in the province but people now have the option of re-booking for an earlier date.

The province says it’s aiming to provide more protection against COVID-19 and allow for a safe return to school in the fall.

Youth are only eligible for doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
