COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility

Are you eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine?

Choose your group to find out if you are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine within the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark region.

You are eligible!

You can book your vaccine appointment by going online at www.ontario.ca/bookvaccine or calling the provincial booking line at 1-833-943-3900. You can also call our local call centre at 1-844-369-1234 to book your vaccine appointment.

Please be patient as our vaccine demand is more than our current supply. If you cannot find an appointment though one method, please try the other and keep trying every few days. Consider registering on our contingency list for a short notice appointment if you are able.

You are eligible as of May 23 at 8:00am; Special Youth Clinics are being planned for week of June 14 and 21.

Youth age 12–17 are eligible to receive their first dose of Pfizer vaccine starting on May 23, 2021. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit (LGLDHU) will have special Youth Clinics across Lanark, Leeds and Grenville counties during the weeks of June 14 and 21 specifically for youth to receive their FIRST DOSE of vaccine. More detailed information about the clinic dates, locations, how to sign up, and what to expect at the clinics will be shared in a letter next week from the local school boards. Youth will have to be 12 at the time they receive vaccine to be eligible (i.e., they cannot be turning 12). The clinic is also available to secondary school students 18–21. Arrangements will be made for students with mobility issues to receive the vaccine separate from the Youth Clinics if needed. Second dose clinics will also be arranged for the youth attending these clinics. If you have questions about your child’s personal health conditions and vaccine, please contact your health care provider.

You are not yet eligible.

Health Canada has not yet approved any vaccines for use on children under 12. Research is ongoing and we hope to hear soon how our youngest residents can be protected.
