District COVID-19 Immunization Clinics

January 19, 2022 update - Booking appointments through the provincial booking system may not work. If you have difficulties, please call your local branch office to book directly through them. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding as we work with the province to mitigate this issue!

Rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in TBDHU district communities continues to align with the plan for Thunder Bay and surrounding areas. TBDHU is working with district partners, including Family Health Teams (FHT), Community Health Centres (CHC) and First Nation partners, who are responsible for administering the vaccines to all community members.

Residents in district communities are encouraged to get vaccinated at local clinics; however, if they are in Thunder Bay for essential reasons, they would be welcome to make an appointment or walk in to the clinic at the CLE Coliseum.

If you are a member of a First Nation community in the Thunder Bay District, please check with your community’s leadership or health care centre for vaccination opportunities.

Please check with your Family Health Team or Community Health Centre for additional information and vaccination opportunities.
