Currently, eligible age groups in our area include:

Other eligible groups:

This list will be updated as other groups become eligible as per the provincial vaccine distribution plan. For scheduled NWHU-led vaccine clinic dates and locations, see our Scheduled NWHU-led CO​VID-19 Vaccine Clinics table.​

How to book your shot

You will receive a ​confirmation code when you have successfully booked your appointment. Please bring this code and your health card with you to the clinic. If you do not have a confirmation code, please try rebooking or call 1-833-943-3900. 

An Ontario health card is required to book using the online system. If you do not have one, you can still get the vaccine but will need to phone 1-866-468-2240.​

Some local pharmacies and health care providers are also providing the AstraZeneca vaccine to anyone aged 55 years or older. If you are interested in getting that vaccine, please contact your health care provider or visit the Ontario Vaccine webpage for pharmacy information.

Shots for anyone aged 60 years or older (born 1961 or earlier):

Use the provincial booking system to book your appointment, either online or by telephone. 

Shots for those with highest risk he​alth conditions (and their caregivers):

  • Call 1-833-943-3900 to book your shot.

If there are no available appointments in your community, please try again soon and do not book in other communities. We are adding more clinics.​

Shots for other eligible groups (not aged 60+):

Complete the registration form below to let us know you want a vaccine appointment. After completing the form, we will send your information to the Ministry. You will then get an email from the Ministry with a code so you can book an appointment. This may take a few days. Be sure to check your spam/junk mail folders and settings to make sure you receive this email.
