Appointment booking open for COVID-19 vaccine for children 6 months to 4 years old

With Health Canada’s recent approval of COVID-19 vaccine for children 6 months to 4 years old, the provincial booking system opened this morning (July 28) for appointments for this age group.
 
The following Niagara Region Public Health clinics are available for booking through the provincial booking system:
  • July 28-30, Aug. 2-5 – Niagara Falls, Canada One Outlet Mall (beside Urban Kids)
  • July 29 – St. Catharines, Pen Centre (By Stars Menswear, Tim Hortons and Booster Juice)
  • Aug. 2, 4-5 – St. Catharines and Thorold Public Health office
  • Aug. 3 – Welland Public Health office
 
Additional clinics dates and locations across the region will continue to be added to the booking system. Please visit our clinic schedule for details including times and addresses.
 
Starting today (July 28), appointments can be booked either online through the provincial booking system at Ontario.ca/bookvaccine or by calling the provincial booking line at 1-833-943-3900. Those without a health card can fill out our COVID-19 - No Health Card form. Please be sure your child has not received any other vaccine in the 14 days prior to their appointment.
 
Due to the expected strong demand for vaccination, there will be NO WALK-INs at these clinics to maximize the number of children we can book into appointments.
 
As well, because of the importance of getting this newly eligible age group vaccinated with their first dose, Public Health is prioritizing those 6 months to 4 year olds and not taking new bookings for other age groups during this time.Anyone who is 5 years of age or older and is looking to get a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is invited to check with a participating pharmacy or their family doctor's office to get the vaccine. As demand for children age 6 months to 4 years lessens, appointments for other age groups and walk-ins will resume.
 
Anyone who has questions is encouraged to check out the COVID-19 information and resources made available through Public Health; call the COVID-19 Info-Line to ask questions by calling 905-688-8248 or 1-888-505-6074, press 7. A recent townhall for parents and guardians of this age group was recorded and can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
