COVID-19 Vaccine Bookings to Open For All Children Aged Five to 11

The approval of the Pfizer vaccine for children aged five to 11 is exciting news for families and a significant milestone in Ontario’s fight against COVID-19 in advance of the holiday season.

The paediatric Pfizer vaccine offered to children aged five to 11 will be a lower dose that is safe and effective at protecting this age group from COVID-19 and the Delta variant.

Vaccinating this eligible population will help protect Ontario’s progress in the fight against COVID-19 and keep the province’s schools safer and open for in-person learning as more people move indoors and attend family gatherings during the winter months.

As of 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, children aged five to 11 across Ontario will be eligible to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment through a variety of channels including the provincial booking system and contact centre, directly through public health units using their own booking system, participating pharmacies, and select primary care providers.

Achieving the highest vaccination rates possible is key to limiting the risk of transmission and protecting our hard-fought progress against COVID-19.

We continue to encourage all Ontarians to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated to protect themselves, their families and their communities.
