The online appointment booking system for COVID-19 vaccinations will begin to accept bookings for adults 80 years of age by the end of 2021 or older on Monday, Mar. 15, 2021.

According to a release from KFL&A Public Health, dated Thursday, Mar. 11, 2021, this provincial online appointment system will provide the capacity needed to accept bookings from a large volume of individuals at one time.

Public Health said more details are expected from the province in the next few days, including the website address to the online appointment registration link and phone number.

KFL&A residents are asked to not contact Public Health to inquire about booking appointments or to check eligibility requirements. Once the information becomes available from the province, Public Health said they will post the registration link and phone number on the KFL&A Public Health’s vaccine webpage.

As KFL&A Public Health and community partners continue to offer COVID-19 vaccine to eligible groups, all residents are asked to be patient. Public Health says if you are not yet eligible, consider assisting family and friends who are eligible, especially adults who are 80 years of age by the end of 2021 or older who may not have online access or be comfortable booking online appointments. 

The provincial online appointment system will be the most efficient way to book a COVID-19 vaccine clinic appointment, followed by the provincial telephone line, according to the release. Please do not attend COVID-19 vaccine clinics without an appointment. Vaccines will only be given to those who have an appointment.

KFL&A Public Health says they appreciate the cooperation of the public to help ensure local vaccine clinics can operate efficiently and effectively.
