Published July 14, 2022 at 10:06 am
All adults over the age of 18 in Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills will be able to book a COVID-19 booster shot as of noon today, Thursday, July 14.
“Our incredible Halton team continues to respond to COVID-19 and provide access to every dose of COVID-19 vaccine,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr.
“Our efficient clinics, easy to use online booking system and friendly clinic staff are ready to support those now eligible to receive a fourth dose. There are also other ways to get the vaccine in our community including many pharmacies and participating primary care providers.”
According to guidelines released by the province, residents 18 years of age and older may receive a second booster five months after their first booster. Individuals who are at higher risk of severe disease from COVID-19 infection, and many of whom are already eligible, are recommended to get their next dose as soon possible.
All second boosters at Halton Region Community Clinics will be offered by appointment only. Appointments are available at Halton Region Community Clinics located in Burlington, Halton Hills, Oakville and Milton. All second booster appointments must be booked through Halton’s online booking system or by calling 311.
All first, second and third doses of COVID-19 vaccine for youth and adults will be available by walk-in or appointment. First and second doses for 5-11 year olds will remain as walk-in only at Halton’s pediatric clinics.
Residents can also receive their doses of COVID-19 vaccine, including fourth doses/second boosters, at Provincial GO-VAXX bus stops, participating pharmacies and many primary care providers. The Province’s pharmacy finder tool allows residents to quickly sort by location and vaccine type.
Residents who require assistance can call 311 to book their appointment. Please only call 311 if you require immediate booking support or do not have internet access. As we expect an increase in volume, please be patient while Halton makes sure those who require support have access to this service.
Transportation services to and from appointments are available, free of charge, for those who require it and parking is free at all clinic locations.
To prepare for your appointment, please remember to:
- bring your health card. If you do not have a health card, bring photo ID with your name and date of birth
- arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your appointment
- wear a mask
- complete a wellness check before entering a clinic, using the Provincial COVID-19 Screening Tool
- attend appointments alone if possible. You may bring one support person if required (for example, a caregiver or interpreter)
