TBDHU Further Expanding Walk In Opportunities for COVID-19 Vaccine

February 2, 2022 - The Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU) is announcing that, effective February 3, 2022, anyone eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination can walk-in to the CLE Coliseum Clinic in Thunder Bay, regardless of which dose they need. This expansion of walk-in opportunities builds on the announcement from last week and now includes:

  • Anyone 18 years and over – for booster doses
  • Children 5-11 years old – for second doses

These were the only two remaining groups that still required appointments.

Individuals can walk-in to the clinic anytime during specified hours. The clinic generally operates 6 days a week with morning, afternoon and early evening times available.

In the District communities, weekly clinics have been scheduled. Please visit the TBDHU website to see dates and locations of these clinics. Walk-in opportunities are typically available at these clinics, and will be announced through social media when they are confirmed.

Appointments for all TBDHU-run clinics remain an option for anyone who prefers them. Appointments can be booked through the provincial booking system or by calling 1-833-943- 3900.

In addition, TBDHU is announcing that the supply of the adult (12+) Pfizer vaccine (Comirnaty) has improved provincially. As a result, TBDHU is no longer restricting Pfizer to those under the age of 30. Individuals 30 years and older can receive Pfizer vaccine if they choose.

Select pharmacies and some primary care providers also continue to provide COVID-19 vaccine to all who are eligible. Stay tuned to the TBDHU website and social media for more information and announcements as details become available.
