Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccine Rollout

Click here to go back to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage.

Please note: Vaccine clinic dates and times are only available based on vaccine supply.

It is advised that all residents in the general population born 5 years of age and older receive their COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to protect you and those around you from serious illnesses like COVID-19. NACI currently recommends that children 5 to 11 years of age wait at least 14 days between COVID-19 vaccines and non-COVID-19 vaccines, including the influenza vaccine.

Renfrew County and District COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic Schedules

Eligible residents will be able to receive their third dose this, if they received their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on or before October 17th.

To book vaccination appointments, you must first create an account, and you must be at least 12 years old to create the account. After the account is created, an email will be sent to you, to validate the email address. Once that is done, the registered person can book appointments for themselves or for other people (e.g., children, family members).

If you have previously created an account for a COVID-19 swab, you will need to create an additional account for COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

To get started, select Create Account below.

November 19, 2021- NACI recommends that:

A complete series of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (10 mcg) may be offered to children 5-11 years of age who do not have contraindications to the vaccine, with a dosing interval of at least 8 weeks between the first and second dose. See NACI’s recommendation here.

 

At this time, it is not recommended that children aged 5 to 11 years of age receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the influenza vaccine.

NACI currently recommends that children 5 to 11 years of age wait at least 14 days between COVID-19 vaccines and non-COVID-19 vaccines, including the influenza vaccine. This is a precautionary measure to help with determining if a side effect that may arise is due to the COVID-19 vaccine or another vaccine. Parents and caregivers of children aged 5-11 years should consult a healthcare provider if they would like their child to receive their influenza vaccine within 14 days of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
