With 89.4 per cent of Durham Region residents ages 12 and older having received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine will help eligible residents to get vaccinated and achieve Durham’s target of 90 per cent vaccination coverage.

Individuals must meet the following criteria to be eligible to receive a Janssen COVID-19 vaccine in a Health Department community immunization clinic:
