Please do not call the Doctor’s offices regarding COVID vaccines – we are no longer running the clinics Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) is.
We are posting information on the clinics they are running but cannot facilitate a faster appointment for you. Currently there are no appointments for both the Dec. 20th clinic nor the Jan. 11 clinic. We believe there will be another clinic on Jan. 25th but it is not open on the Ontario booking system yet.
If we notified that more appointments have been open for Dec. 20th or Jan. 11 we will post.
If we are notified that the Jan 25 clinic is available for booking, we will post.
Please follow us on FB and encourage others to do the same, we will post information as it becomes available to us.
If you are going to Thunder Bay you can try booking online for a clinic there. Remember you will not receive an appointment until 168 days after your second vaccine, and currently you must be 50+. Thanks for your patience and understanding. NSFHT
