Huron Perth COVID-19 vaccinations continue to be booked through HPPH

The province will launch a provincial booking system and customer service desk to support COVID-19 vaccination appointment bookings tomorrow (Monday, March 15); however eligible residents of Huron-Perth will continue to book their COVID-19 vaccinations through Huron Perth Public Health (HPPH).

Ontario is supporting its public health units with the implementation of the new provincial booking system in the ways that best suit local needs. HPPH has a self-established booking tool and call centre, and so will continue for the time being to book appointments for COVID-19 vaccination clinics.

A list of those currently eligible is available at www.hpph.ca/vaccine. For those eligible, appointments can be booked through www.hpph.ca/vaccine or through the HPPH booking line at 1-833-753-2098. We highly encourage online bookings as call volume is high.

Eligible seniors can ask a trusted individual to book on their behalf. Several local agencies are also assisting eligible seniors to book online using the HPPH booking system. Contact the Community Support Services Network at 1-844-482-7800 to be connected to a local agency near you that can assist you. Through that number, accessible rides can also be scheduled where needed.

Our phone line and webpage are updated regularly advising whether appointments for future clinics are available to book. Please do not call your primary care provider or pharmacy for more information on appointments. Appointments at this time are only booked through HPPH.

Vaccinations for those born in 1941 or earlier

The province has confirmed that vaccination eligibility for those 80 and older applies to any individual who will be turning 80 or older in 2021 (born in 1941 or earlier). If this applies to you, please follow the booking instructions listed above to book an appointment. HPPH apologizes to those who were turned away until we received this current provincial direction.

Please remember that vaccinations are only available to eligible groups.  There will be enough vaccine for everyone. Anyone who wants to be vaccinated will have an opportunity to be vaccinated.

Please know that once HPPH announces that you are eligible for the vaccine, you are always eligible; you will not miss your chance to be vaccinated as there will be more opportunities.
