District COVID-19 Immunization Clinics

Rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in TBDHU district communities continues to align with the plan for Thunder Bay and surrounding areas, which is also consistent with the Ministry of Health’s Vaccine Distribution Implementation Plan

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 to attend a clinic in the city.

 

Eligibility

First Doses

  • All individuals aged 18+ are eligible to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.
  • Youth aged 12 to 17 are eligible to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

Second Doses

  • Individuals 18 and older who received their first dose of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna).  Any second dose appointments must be at least 28 days following the first dose.
  •  Individuals 12-17 who received their first dose of Pfizer at least 28 days following the first dose.

Appointments are also available at all District pharmacies for individuals 18 and older to receive first and second doses of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna).

Your respective FHT/CHC will make every attempt to contact you. However, please call them to schedule as appointment if you have not heard from them. If you are not a client of the respective provider serving your community, please call to provide your name and contact.

Please note, if you are contacted for an appointment in Thunder Bay, please check with your local provider to determine the timeline for an appointment in your local community.

Please check your Family Health Team or Community Health Centre website and/or social media channels, or check back on this page, for additional information.

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.
