Today, the province announced that individuals ages 75+ (born in 1946 or earlier) can begin booking appointments using the provincial booking system starting on Monday, March 22. The Health Unit’s COVID-19 Distribution and Administration Roll Out Plan identifies the approximate times when people in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark can receive the vaccine. This plan aligns with the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan. Anyone under 75, please check the eligibility tool to see if you are eligible to receive the vaccine at this time in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark. We will be updating the tool regularly so you will be able to find out when you can receive the vaccine.
How do you book an appointment?
Starting Monday, March 22 adults born in 1946 or earlier (ages 75+) can book by:
- Using the Province’s new online booking tool at www.ontario.ca/bookvaccine

Family and Friend Support for Booking
If you have friends or family who are over 75 years old (were born in 1946 or earlier), ask them if they have had their vaccine or booked an appointment. Please consider helping these individuals to book their appointments, as some may not have online access or be comfortable booking online appointments.
