UPDATE: The province has just issued a media release with the details of the booking system that launches tomorrow:
People 80 years of age and older will be able to book appointments starting at 08 tomorrow (Monday morning).
The web link for the system is http://www.ontario.ca/bookvaccine. All anyone needs to book an appointment is their Ontario Health Card.
For those who have trouble, or are unable to use the online system, they can call the Provincial Vaccine Information Line number at 1-888-999-6488. The Niagara Region website is updated with this information as well at http://www.niagararegion.ca/covid19 and click the link for vaccination.
Niagara Public Health’s schedule for community clinic vaccinations to protect against COVID-19 has been released.
The first community clinic to vaccinate people aged 80 and older will be held in Niagara Falls on March 18.
Niagara-on-the-Lake’s first clinics at the community centre are scheduled for two days, March 31 and April 1, and then again on April 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The schedule for the 11 Niagara community vaccination sites for the 80-plus age group was announced Friday, and goes from March 18 to April 10.
Clinics will operate on a rotating basis, and will increase in frequency over the next few weeks, the release says.
Once there is enough supply of vaccine available, local pharmacies and family doctors are expected to begin holding clinics.
Vaccinations are by appointment only, and seniors in the 80-plus age group will be to register online or by telephone, beginning Monday, when the provincial registration portal opens. Public Health did not release information about accessing the website or the phone number to call. That information is expected to be provided this weekend.
