Other information

NOTE: In response to the rapidly evolving operation of COVID-19 vaccination clinics, the EOHU is adapting the process of its standby list. The previous standby list registration tool closed on June 11, 2021 and is now replaced with a daily email submission system. Find out more.

NOTE: Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are administered at COVID-19 vaccination clinics throughout the EOHU region. Depending on vaccine availability, individuals attending clinics for their second dose may not receive the same vaccine they received as a first dose. Learn more.

NOTE: To increase the number of individuals benefiting from a first dose of vaccine in the context of a limited COVID-19 vaccine supply, the province is following recommendations from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) to extend the time interval of the second dose of COVID-19 vaccines up to 16 weeks. This applies to the three two-dose vaccines currently approved by Health Canada (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD).

NOTE: On May 11th, Ontario announced it is pausing the rollout and administration of first doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine out of an abundance of caution due to an observed increase in the rare blood clotting condition.

Please be assured that the EOHU is undertaking every effort to distribute the vaccines as soon as they are received in order to protect as many of our residents as possible, as quickly as possible. It remains extremely important to continue following public health precautions – even if you have received the vaccine – until a large majority of residents in our region have been vaccinated.
