Welcome to the WDG Public Health Online COVID-19 Vaccination Registration Portal
Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health is inviting all residents of WDG to pre-register for COVID-19 vaccination appointments. Demand for the COVID-19 vaccine is currently higher than the available supply, so we ask the public for patience. The current projection is for all residents to receive an appointment invitation by the end of June 2021.
Step 1: Pre-registration
Pre-registration helps ensure that you receive an appointment as soon as it is available for you. Below are the priority groups listed in the Province’s vaccine framework. If you are included in more than one, choose the one that is highest on the list.
Phase 1 (Immediate appointments available)

*Please visit our webpage for more information on the specific eligibility criteria for these categories that have been identified by the Ontario COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan.
Step 2: Appointment booking
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 for confirmation of registration and when you are eligible for your appointment. Emails and/or texts may include your personal health information, a website link and Internal Database ID 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: Preparing for your appointment
You are required to bring ID (an OHIP card or any other form of government issued-photo ID if you do not have an OHIP card) to confirm your appointment. For occupation-based priority groups, please bring workplace ID to confirm your eligibility. Visit our website for more information on what is required before you attend your COVID-19 vaccine appointment and instructions for the day of your appointment - https://wdgpublichealth.ca/vaccine-prep.
Public Health takes vaccine prioritization seriously. Providing false information may result in cancellation of your appointment and notification to the appropriate regulatory college.
