Our vaccination dashboard, available on our website, has all the details and will be updated again next Tuesday, November 15

Vaccination Booking Reminders

A list of upcoming clinics is available on our website. Clinic dates and locations are posted through to December. More appointments will be added as capacity allows.

Walk-in appointments will be accepted at Health Unit clinics dependent on capacity; clinics tend to be busier during the first 2 hours – not all vaccines will be available for all age groups so check ahead

We encourage you to continue to check with a participating pharmacy or your health care provider.

Vaccine appointments for six months to five years of age MUST be made by calling the Vaccine Call Centre at 1-844-369-1234 Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:00pm (NOT through the online booking system or the Provincial system).

A reminder that while vaccination remains the single most effective measure to reduce your risk of getting or being seriously ill with COVID-19, there are other ways you can increase your personal protection, including:

– Wearing a mask in public spaces (this also protects others)

– Choosing virtual interactions and well-ventilated indoor spaces where possible
