This page includes important information you need to know before you book your appointment and information on how to ensure you are prepared for your appointment. Please read carefully.

Before you book your appointment

Please read the following important information:

  • Clinics are available by appointment only. No walk-ins—those who show up at clinics without an appointment, will not be permitted to enter.
  • A friend, family member or support person can book an appointment for you.
  • Each individual requires their own appointment—our booking system does not currently allow group bookings (for example, spouses/partners).
  • Only residents 80 years of age or older (or someone on their behalf) can book at this time. View a list of who is currently eligible in Halton and how to book an appointment.

Please be advised: We are currently accepting appointments for residents of Halton region, including Burlington, Halton Hills (Georgetown, Acton), Milton or Oakville who are currently 80 years of age or older.

If you are 80 years or older, and have any of the medical conditions below, please consult a medical professional who is familiar with your personal health status before booking your appointment:

    • Other target agents (e.g. CD4/6 inhibitors, PARP inhibitors etc.)

Your health care provider will assess the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination with you. If vaccination is recommended by your health care provider, please proceed to book your appointment and complete the Documentation of Verbal Attestation Form (external PDF) to indicate that you have discussed the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination with your health care provider.

If you are booking the appointment on behalf of someone else, you will be asked to provide your name, relationship with the client, and your contact information. By providing your contact information, the Region may contact you if there are important changes to the client’s appointment.

Halton residents are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from their vaccination appointments. If you are able to, please drive yourself or make arrangements for a ride from a family member or a support person. If you will be travelling to a clinic with someone from outside of your household, please review our COVID-19 Public Health Guidelines: Car Travel for tips on how to travel safely (PDF file).

To ensure that we can accommodate those that need it most, residents are encouraged to make their own arrangements where possible.

  • book an appointment to be tested at a COVID-19 Assessment Centre.

All residents, including individuals attending an appointment as a support (for example, caregiver) will be actively screened. Individuals who do not pass the screening test, will not be permitted to enter the vaccine clinic and will be advised to follow public health direction and reschedule at a later date.
