Booking an Appointment

  • Visit our COVID-19 Protection and Vaccines page for details of how to book your vaccine appointment
  • Booking lines are busy so please be patient or try calling back later in the day or week.
  • If you don’t immediately see appointments available, please keep trying as more availability will be added to the system when more vaccine is received or appointments have been cancelled.
  • Second dose appointments are available for those that reach their 16 week interval or that qualify for an earlier dose (individuals 70 plus are now eligible for an earlier second dose and well as those who had received their first dose by April 18th).
  • Getting the same type of vaccine for your first and second doses is optimal but guidance has been release allowing mixing of vaccine types,
  • Self-booking can now be done online as well as through our call centre.
    • This is a booking system, it does not assess eligibility. If there is availability you will be able to book an appointment. If you are not eligible, you will be turned away at the clinic.
  • The new weekly contingency list program offers up last minute doses to those in the priority groups. Signs up each week between Tuesday at 8:00am and Wednesday at 4:30pm to be called. We have been going through this list each week so it is a good way to get an earlier appointment.
  • Be sure to cancel any not needed appointments – contact the 1-844-369-1234 number to cancel or, for bookings in Pomelo, check your email confirmation from the first appointment for a link to cancel online.

Vaccines for Youth 12-17

  • Youth can book outside of these clinics – but will likely get in sooner through them due to the scarcity of other appointment times. Youth 12–17 are only eligible for Pfizer vaccine
