Ontario has now administered over 500,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses

Published on February 18, 2021

Today we hit an important milestone: 500,000 total doses of COVID-19 vaccines administered. 

Despite ongoing vaccine delays and reduced shipments, our government continues to make progress in vaccinating our most vulnerable, including residents in long-term care, high-risk retirement and First Nations elder care homes. At this time, we are pleased to report that residents at all long-term care homes across the province have been given an opportunity to receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Amidst these delays, vaccination teams also continue to distribute vaccines in First Nations fly-in communities in the north as part of Operation Remote Immunity. As we receive more vaccines from the federal government, we will ensure that every Ontarian who wishes to receive a vaccine can get one.
