Increasing Access to COVID-19 Vaccines

Select Ontario pharmacies offering 24/7 COVID-19 vaccinations to support at-risk communities

Our PC government continues to work with our pharmacy partners to ensure communities who are most at-risk are able to access COVID-19 vaccines conveniently, close to home and around the clock.

Our government, in collaboration with Shoppers Drug Mart, will offer 24/7 COVID-19 vaccinations for individuals aged 40 and over at 20 pharmacy locations, beginning as early as April 21, 2021, with the majority of sites located in hot spot communities.

In addition, pharmacies are now able to offer walk-in services in addition to offering vaccines by appointment. Ontarians should contact participating pharmacies to figure out how best to receive the vaccine.

The province continues to expand the number pharmacy locations available to administer COVID-19 vaccines. Last week more than 700 pharmacies came on board across the province, bringing the total to over 1,400 locations.

To help increase access to vaccines for those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, we will ensure pharmacies in hot spot communities will receive additional AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD doses, as part of our government’s commitment to dedicate 25% of future vaccine allocations to hot spot communities across the 13 public health unit regions.

Vaccines remain the best way to protect your health and those around you, and we strongly encourage everyone to sign up to get vaccinated when it’s your turn.
