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!

Anyone 18+ is eligible to book their first dose, and as of June 28, 2021 they can also book a sooner second dose. Book first or second dose vaccine appointments through our Leeds, Grenville and Lanark online booking portal, through the Province’s online booking system: www.ontario.ca/bookvaccine, or by phone with the provincial booking line at 1-833-943-3900 or our local call centre at 1-844-369-1234. *Note – if you have not turned 18 yet at the time of your appointment – you can only receive the Pfizer brand as it is currently the only vaccine brand approved for 12–17 year olds.

o When booking a second dose appointment:

  • Ensure the second dose appointment is at least 21 days after the first dose if you received Pfizer.
  • Ensure the second dose appointment 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.

Please be patient as our vaccine demand is more than our current supply. If you cannot find an appointment though one system, 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. Don’t forget to cancel any appointments that are no longer needed so others can use them.

You are eligible!

Youth age 12–17 are eligible to receive their first dose of Pfizer vaccine as of May 23, 2021. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit (LGLDHU) hosted 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. Youth can also book into a regular vaccine clinic or a participating pharmacy to receive their first dose of Pfizer. Do not book into a “Moderna-only” clinic as Pfizer is the only brand of vaccine that is currently approved for use with 12–17 year olds. Youth will have to be 12 at the time they receive vaccine to be eligible (i.e., they cannot be turning 12). If you have questions about your child’s personal health conditions and vaccine, please contact your health care provider.

o If you received your first dose at one of the community clinics that were set up for youth (Lanark Village – June 11,  Gananoque – June 14,  Elgin – June 15,  Athens – June 17,  Perth – June 23, Prescott – June 24, Carleton Place – June 26), you will be automatically booked into a second dose clinic at the same location and the Health Unit will notify you by phone or email of the date and time of your earlier appointment. See our July 2, 2021 media release on Vaccine second Doses for LGL Youth for more information.

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.
