Issues Resolved with On-line and Phone Booking for COVID-19 Vaccine

Posted On: Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Beginning 8:00 a.m., Monday, March 15, those turning 80 this year or older, born 1941 or earlier, can make appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations through the provincial on-line booking system at https://ontario.ca/bookvaccine . For those without access to the internet, the toll-free number 1-833-943-3900 will enable appointments via telephone.

Issues Resolved with On-line and Phone Booking for COVID-19 Vaccine

Issues experienced by some individuals unable to use the provincial on-line and toll-free phone line vaccine booking system are now resolved.

There has been robust communication between the Grey Bruce Health Unit and the operators of the provincial on-line system to address the issues within hours.

 

We are pleased to report 1,500 appointments booked in Grey Bruce on the first day. That used up all available clinic times. Additional clinics and times are being added as more vaccine becomes available.

We thank the public for observing the parameters with respect to the appropriate eligibility when using the system.

For those eligible, appointments can be made on-line at https://ontario.ca/bookvaccine or through the provincial toll free number 1-888-999-6488.

Do not call public health or your healthcare provider for an appointment. We thank you for your patience. We ask to please stay tuned to our messaging when the next age groups will be eligible to use the system.
