Ontario has a three-phase vaccination plan, and as of April 23, pregnancy has been further prioritized to the "highest risk" category in phase two of the vaccine roll out. All pregnant individuals in Ontario are now eligible to get vaccinated for COVID-19.  More details will be posted as information becomes available.

In their latest statement, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (Canada’s leading authority on sexual and reproductive health) "supports the use of all available COVID-19 vaccines approved in Canada in any trimester of pregnancy and during breastfeeding in accordance with regional eligibility" (April 21, 2021).
