Ontario has administered more than 16 million vaccine doses to date and more than 51 per cent of adults in the province are fully immunized.
More than 78 per cent of adults have received at least one dose.
Everyone in the province is eligible to book an accelerated second dose provided they received their first dose of a mRNA vaccine at least four weeks before booking the second shot – or AstraZeneca at least eight weeks before booking.
The province has outlined post-vaccination indicators over the past month.
From May 15 to June 12 there were more than 29,000 new infections reported. Over that timespan approximately 83 per cent of the cases were among people who were not vaccinated at all. Only 1.2 per cent of the cases were people who were fully vaccinated.
