Public Health Pre-Registration
COVID-19 vaccine pre-registration is now available! Adults 80 years of age and older (anyone born in 1941 or earlier) and individuals who receive chronic home care services are being asked to pre-register for vaccine clinics.  The first 2 clinics on Manitoulin for these groups will be held the week of March 15th.  All vaccination clinics are by appointment only. If you are not in one of the eligible groups, please do not pre-register at this time, so that the system can run as smoothly as possible.

To pre-register, please visit:

If you are unable to pre-register online or need help, please call 1.800.708.2505 and call centre staff will be pleased to assist you. We thank you for your patience if call volumes are high.

Although all adults 80 years of age and older (anyone born in 1941 or earlier) and individuals receiving chronic home care are currently eligible for vaccine, the vaccine supply is limited. People who have pre-registered will be randomly selected to receive appointment booking offers, and the number of appointments will match the number of doses we have available. Individuals who are randomly selected will be contacted directly, by email or phone, with information on how to book an appointment.  You do not need to have a local health care provider, however must reside in the Manitoulin Region.

Pre-registration will remain open and random selection will be ongoing to match pre-registrants to the vaccine supply and clinic schedules on Manitoulin Island. Due to high demand and limited supply, pre-registering does not mean you will get an appointment immediately. Once you pre-register, you will not need to do so again.

While appointments may be limited at first, over time, more clinics will continue to be scheduled and anyone eligible to receive the vaccine will be able to receive one. The COVID-19 vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect yourself from the virus.

Pre-register now:

COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent Forms to be filled out and brought with you to the clinics. Also available at the Municipal Office Foyer M-F 8:30 to 4:30
In preparation of COVID vaccine clinics in our area that will first go to seniors, the local Family Health Teams are asking that seniors have their COVID-19 Vaccine Screening and Consent forms filled out and ready for the vaccine clinics.
The clinics are calling patients and instead of them all travelling to their respective FHT or physician office to pick up a form they will be able to pick them up in their communities. Forms are available in the foyer of the Municipal Office in Mindemoya from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday.
They are also available to print out here Covid-19 vaccine screening and consent form.pdf
If you have questions regarding the forms or upcoming vaccination clinics, please contact your local Family Health Team or Public Health Unit.
