Windsor and Essex County youth 12 to 17 years of age and older are eligible to book their second dose Pfizer BioNTech vaccine at a mass vaccination clinic, local pharmacy, or healthcare provider office that is administering vaccines. Youth will have to have received their first dose of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine on or before June 10, at least 28 days prior to booking their second dose appointment.

Those eligible to book an appointment do not need to receive the second vaccine in the same location as the first. We encourage all eligible youth who want to attend a mass vaccination clinic to book online through the online booking system or by calling the vaccination booking call centre at 226-773-2200 to make an appointment.

Appointments are still required for first and second COVID-19 vaccine doses at all of the mass vaccination clinics, participating pharmacies, and participating healthcare providers. When attending your booked appointment, ID must be provided. Please bring your health card or other identification that shows who you are and where you live. Examples of acceptable ID include:

  • Driver’s license
  • Health card
  • Passport
  • Student card
  • Other forms of ID such as registered mail, work ID, or pay stub 

Please continue to practice public health measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community:

  • Maintain a 2 metre distance from others.
  • Limit your contacts to your household only.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly and often.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Use a medical or non-medical mask (e.g., cloth) in public settings.
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
  • Stay home and do not go to work or school if you are sick.
