Step 2: You will be contacted for an appointment

When vaccines become available for your group, Public Health will use the contact information you provide to send you an email and/or text message. This email and/or text message will include a website link and unique code so that you can schedule a date, time and location for you to receive your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Please check your JUNK/SPAM folders regularly.

Step 3: On your appointment day 

Everyone is required to bring an OHIP card or any government issued-photo ID (if no OHIP card) to confirm your appointment. For occupation-based priority groups, please bring workplace ID to confirm your eligibility.
