A Practical Way for Children to Receive their COVID-19 Vaccine
“Now that children are back in school, it’s more important than ever to ensure they’re vaccinated to protect them and their families from COVID-19,” says Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health at the EOHU. “These weekend walk-in clinics are a practical way for parents to get their children vaccinated without changing their routine during the week.”
Parents can also book a vaccination appointment for their children at a community-based clinic through Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccination portal at covid19.ontariohealth.ca or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1 833 943-3900. COVID-19 vaccines for children will also be available at participating pharmacies and healthcare providers’ offices. For children who have barriers preventing them from physically going to a vaccination clinic, parents/guardians can call the EOHU at 1 800 267-7120 to discuss alternate arrangements.
The COVID-19 vaccines are safe for children.
