COVID-19 Vaccine: Second Dose Appointments

Second dose appointments are scheduled according to the COVID-19 vaccine dosing interval set by the provincial government. In Ontario, second dose appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine are to be scheduled 16 weeks from the first dose for most populations. Click here for more information on the 16 week dosing interval.

We will contact you approximately 12 weeks after your first dose to confirm your second dose appointment. Please do not contact our COVID-19 vaccine booking office about your second dose appointment unless you have not heard from us after 13 weeks from your first dose. If you booked your appointment with us through the provincial government booking system your second dose appointment was automatically scheduled.

Exemptions from the 16 week dosing interval

Some populations who are at very high risk or live in vulnerable settings are eligible to receive the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine 21 to 28 days from the first dose. This includes:

  1. Transplant recipients (including solid organ transplants and hematopoietic stem cell transplants).
  2. Individuals with a malignant hematologic disorder.
  3. Individuals with a non-hematologic malignant solid tumor who are receiving active treatment (chemotherapy, targeted therapies, immunotherapy). Please note: this excludes individuals receiving solely hormonal therapy or radiation therapy.

If you have already received your first dose through East Toronto Health Partners (ETHP) and believe you qualify for a 21 to 28 day dosing interval, please contact our COVID-19 vaccine booking office at 437-537-5131.

Please attend your second dose appointment on the scheduled date and time. If you need to speak with someone about cancelling or rescheduling your second dose appointment, please contact our COVID-19 vaccine booking office at 437-537-5131.
