Niagara Region Public Health is pleased to announce a run of vaccination clinics tailored for youth and their families. The clinics are available now for booking through the provincial booking system, for those 12-17 years old and their families. Eligible residents can book an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination either online through the provincial portal at Ontario.ca/bookvaccine or by calling the provincial booking system at 1-833-943-3900.
Health Canada has authorized the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for youth aged 12 and up. Youth must be 12 years old on the day of their vaccination appointment.
Youth will be eligible for an accelerated second dose so that they can complete two doses before school resumes in the fall. Information on how and when to bump up their next appointment will be shared as soon as it becomes available.
If you have questions about COVID-19 vaccination in youth, we encourage you to review Niagara Region Public Health’s webpages: COVID-19 Vaccination in Youth (Age 12 to 17 ) – Niagara Region, Ontario as well as Your COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment – Niagara Region, Ontario.
