As those over the age of 70 and those who received their first dose on or before April 18th look to re-book their second dose appointment at a shorter interval starting tomorrow, an online option for those who booked multiple appointments using the same phone number or email address will now be available. The Middlesex-London Health Unit has updated its appointment booking system to allow those who booked multiple appointments using the same contact information the opportunity to re-book second dose appointments online.
Anyone who used the same email address or cell phone number to book a first dose appointment for more than one person can now re-book shortened-interval appointments for multiple individuals online at www.covidvaccinelm.ca [use Gate #4 I need to re-book my scheduled second dose] or by calling the Appointment Booking Phone Line at 226-289-3560 to re-book a second dose appointment.
Due to high demand for the COVID-19 vaccine and given that residents have been able to book vaccination appointments up to four weeks in advance, the number of appointments that will be available on or before Thursday, June 24th will be limited. If you already have a second dose vaccination appointment scheduled and you do not feel the need to receive your second dose of vaccine at an earlier available date, there is no requirement to re-book your second dose appointment.
For a listing of those who are eligible for a shortened interval between vaccine doses, visit the MLHU’s vaccine eligibility page: https://www.healthunit.com/covid-19-vaccine-eligibility#second-dose-schedule
