Update: April 23, 2021

Prioritization of pregnant people for vaccination in Ontario. Today, Ontario announced that as of April 23rd, 2021, all pregnant individuals will be eligible to register for vaccination appointments under the highest risk health conditions in the Phase 2 prioritization guidance. The information below is directly from the Ministry of Health: "Pregnant individuals are eligible to receive their vaccine through Public Health Unit(PHU) immunization clinics by booking an appointment through the provincial call centre at 1-888-999-6488.  Pregnant individuals who are in a PHU not using the provincial booking system will be directed to their local PHU to book an appointment. Pregnant individuals may choose to receive the vaccine at any time during their pregnancy. However, essential consideration should be made for those in the later stages of their pregnancy.
