District Communities COVID-19 Vaccination 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. Distribution of vaccines in each community may differ slightly due to specific demographics and capacity.

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 the clinic at the CLE Coliseum.
