We acknowledge that there are many questions about the COVID-19 vaccine and more specifically, how and when you will have the opportunity to receive it.
Durham Region residents:
Durham Region Health Department has expanded eligibility for COVID-19 vaccine to area residents born in 1961 and earlier and those in select priority groups (see a full list of eligibility criteria here). Individuals in these eligibility groups can book appointments at www.durham.ca/vaccineappointment. (If you try to book using the provincial site, you will be redirected to the regional booking site). Residents who need assistance to book an appointment can call 1-888-444-5113. We encourage you to use online booking as the telephone wait time may be long.
Clinics are available by APPOINTMENT ONLY. You will not be permitted to enter the vaccine clinic without an appointment.
Vaccine sites are located in Clarington, Pickering, Whitby and Ajax, and in the north Durham area, rotating clinics hosted in Uxbridge, Scugog and Brock. Residents can book at any municipal clinic site. For appointments at the Oshawa site visit covidvaccine.lh.ca or call 905-721-4828.
COVID-19 vaccination clinics are operating for priority populations at the following locations:
For those who live outside of Durham Region:
Please check for eligibility in your Public Health Region through the provincial booking system at ontario.ca/bookvaccine.
Please watch for information from your local health department regarding vaccine eligibility in your region.
The Health Department is still currently experiencing a shortage of vaccine. The ongoing operation of clinics is dependent on vaccine supply which is received from the province. For a listing of all clinic locations or for more information on the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan for Durham Region visit www.durham.ca/covidvaccines.
Medical Associates of Port Perry and the North Durham Health Team will be actively involved in the deployment of the COVID-19 vaccine. We will provide our patients and community with information about how and when you can get the vaccine as that information becomes available. We encourage you to refer back to this website for updates as well as those of Durham Public Health and the Province of Ontario.
We are committed to serving the healthcare needs of our community and we will continue to dedicate and prioritize our resources in response to COVID-19.
Thank you for your continued commitment to Public Health guidelines as we all work to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Your healthcare workers, both front-line and support, appreciate your efforts.
