Published May 31, 2021 at 12:19 pm

Beginning Monday, May 31, youths who live or attend school in Halton will be able to book their COVID-19 vaccine appointments online.

Youths ages 12-17 will be able to consent to vaccination on their own behalf, provided that they understand the benefits and risks of the vaccination.

Individuals must have had their 12th birthday at the time of their first dose. Proof of age and residency will be required.

Youths in this age group are encouraged to have a discussion with a parent or guardian to ensure they are making an informed decision.

Students 18+ and returning to high school in Halton this September are also encouraged to get vaccinated through the program so they can receive both doses by the end of August.
