COVID-19 Client Vaccinations & Boosters

Ontario has updated eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine to protect individuals most at risk of serious illness from the virus. Based on the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and health experts, the province will begin offering third doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to Residents of long-term care homes.

Evidence shows that several months after receiving two COVID-19 vaccine doses, the immune response in residents who live in long-term care homes wanes significantly compared to the general population. Administering a third dose to residents can help boost their immune response for improved protection against COVID-19. Third doses will be offered to these individuals in their residence (either within the home or through a mobile clinic) and can be administered at a minimum of five months following their second dose.

Consent Form

To provide or decline consent for a first, second or third dose of COVID-19 vaccine, Residents or their Substitute Decision Makers must complete the form in the link below.
