How do people book an appointment to get their second dose?
The health unit is contacting people who are due to receive their second dose soon and who have not already booked a second dose through the provincial booking system.
Once the provincial system is updated to allow you to book your own second dose appointment we will let you know - until then the Health Unit will continue to help with these bookings.
It is our expectation that the update will take place well in advance of when people who receive their first doses at the “hot spot” vaccine clinics are ready for a second dose; however, if this is not the case, then we will likewise contact you to book a second dose closer to the due date.
Are there other places I can get vaccinated?
If eligible, you can also book an appointment for the regular clinics through the
provincial booking site or call the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line: 1-888-999-6488; Hours of Operation - 8:00 a.m. - 8 p.m. Monday-Sunday.
local pharmacies are also providing vaccinations.
Translation/interpretation support will be available at your vaccine appointment. If you would prefer to bring a support person to assist you with translation/interpretation you can do so.
