The vast majority of Niagara residents live within 15 minutes of a clinic, and many live within 15 minutes of two or more clinics. COVID-19 vaccination clinics will rotate to different communities at a frequency that mirrors the size of the 80 year-old and older population in those communities.

Use the provincial portal to book. Eligible residents should have their health cards ready as they are needed to book an appointment.

If support is needed to make an appointment, the portal does allow for a family member or friend to help.

In Niagara, as over 60,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered so far.
