COVID-19 Vaccine Info: Healthcare Professionals

Vaccines in Ontario

The Ministry of Health, through the guidance of the provincial COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force, directs allocation of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccine rollout in Ontario follows Ontario’s three phased COVID-19 vaccine plan and ethical framework for vaccine distribution. The province has identified priority groups in each phase.

Find updated information on who is eligible for vaccine during each phase at www.ontario.ca/covidvaccine. This page also provides information on vaccine safety and Ontario’s COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Task Force.

Vaccines in Huron Perth

Please see our COVID-19 Vaccine Information page for updates, public FAQ's, milestones, and Huron Perth’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan.

The Huron Perth Mass Vaccination Advisory Committee (HPMVAC) is planning for administration and distribution of the vaccine based on the Province’s distribution plan and ethical framework. To see the list of HPMVAC membership representatives and weekly memos visit our COVID-19 Vaccine Information page.

Because short-term vaccine supply will continue to be less than the number of eligible recipients identified, the Regional COVID-19 Vaccine Prioritization Advisory Committee is further sequencing these groups. Learn more about the regional committee and vaccine eligibility.
