Report an out-of-province COVID-19 vaccination

Getting fully vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19. If you live in Halton and received a COVID-19 vaccine outside of Ontario or Canada, report this information to Halton Region Public Health. The information you submit will be assessed and if needed, you will receive instructions by email on how to get a COVID-19 vaccination.

Halton Region Public Health will contact you after a minimum of ten (10) business days to let you know if you require more doses.

If you received one or two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not approved for use by Health Canada (external link), you will need to receive an additional dose of an approved Health Canada COVID-19 mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) to be considered fully vaccinated in Ontario.
