UPDATE: The process for our contingency list will be changing starting on Tuesday, May 25. Our contingency lists will be created/start fresh each week instead of being open to sign-up on an ongoing basis. You will have to sign up each week that you would like to be considered for a standby dose. The process is changing because many people are not cancelling their place on the contingency list when they get vaccinated so we have to call a lot of names before finding someone to come to receive vaccine at the end of the day and risk wastage if we can’t get people in time. You will be able to sign up using this link from 8:00am on Tuesday, July 13 to 4:30pm Wednesday, July 14 to be placed on the contingency list for July 15 to July 21.
There are times that we have extra doses of vaccine near the end of a clinic. This could be because of no shows or last minute cancellations. Given the importance and limited supply of this vaccine, it is imperative that we not waste one dose. We also need to consider that the vaccine is fragile and according to its unique storage and handling guidelines cannot be moved beyond the clinic it has been brought to.
It is important for us to have a group of ready individuals that live within 30 minutes of one of the fixed sites and would be willing to come and get a vaccine with last minute notice. These individuals still must be eligible.
The clinic lead will monitor doses available at the clinic, when they know doses will be available they will pull up the contingency list and begin calling people that meet the eligibility criteria (phone number may come up as a private caller). This individual will be invited to come to the clinic to receive the extra dose.
The individual will be given further direction at the time of the call on where to go and what to do. If there are no extra doses, then we will not need to implement the contingency list for that site on that day.
If you would like to be on the list, please complete the following form.
Note: Individuals only need to submit their name once each week.
*The contingency list is for people needing first doses and those eligible to receive their second dose. It is used at our fixed site clinics that carry Pfizer and/or Moderna based on our vaccine supply. As of July 5, anyone 12+ is eligible to book a sooner second dose. Ensure the second dose is at least 21 days from the first dose if you received Pfizer. Ensure the second dose is at least 28 days after the first dose if you received Moderna. Ensure the second dose is at least 8 weeks after the first dose if you received AstraZeneca. Youth must be at least 12 at the time of administration.
You can sign up using this link from 8:00am on Tuesday, July 13 to 4:30pm Wednesday, July 14 to be placed on the contingency list for July 15 to July 21.
