Clinics in Red Lake are by appointment only at this time.

Please note: Pfizer and Moderna are interchangeable and you may not get the same vaccine brand for your 2nd dose. Learn more here​.

Anyone who received their first dose of AstraZeneca can receive a second dose of the same vaccine or of an mRNA vaccine after 8 weeks from their first dose. 

Eligible Groups for first doses

  • Anyone aged 12+ is currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and can book an appointment at: www.ontario.ca/bookvaccine or by calling 1-833-943-3900.​​​
Eligible Groups for second doses:

Eligible populations can book their 2nd dose using the provincial booking system​. Eligible populations include:

  • Anyone born in 1951 or earlier (70+ in 2021)
  • Anyone who had their first dose on or before April 18
  • First Nations, Inuit and Metis people and their household members
  • Those who live in a long term care home or Elder care lodge
  • Transplant recipients, dialysis patients, cancer patients on active treatment, and those taking anti-CD20 agent medications
  • High risk health care workers as defined here 

 Important information about 2nd doses:

As per the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) guidance, the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines can be safely interchanged for first and second doses if the original mRNA vaccine is not readily available. NWHU will make all attempts at providing the same vaccine as the first dose, however, if it is not available, individuals may receive the other brand of mRNA vaccine instead. There is no reason to believe that this impacts the vaccine’s effectiveness or safety and is a common practice in routine vaccination series for other diseases.

Preparing for your appointment:

Please wear short sleeves and bring your confirmation code and ​ health card with you to the clinic. It is a good idea to eat something before being vaccinated.
