MLHU Preparing to Accelerate Second-Dose Appointments to Individuals 80+ As Soon As Possible

Posted by on

The Government of Ontario announced the accelerated rollout of second dose COVID-19 vaccine appointments in the province this afternoon. Among the updates the Government provided was the expansion of accelerated second-dose vaccination appointment bookings to adults 80 years of age and older, starting early next week. In response to the announcement, the Middlesex-London Health Unit is currently determining a plan of action that responds to the Province’s accelerated rollout of second dose appointments and will provide an update when further information is available about when those over the age of 80 will be able to re-book second dose appointments.

At this time, only those currently listed in our second-dose schedule will be eligible to book an accelerated second dose appointment. Also, at this time, second dose appointments can only be made by calling 226-289-3560 (8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday to Sunday). You cannot currently book a second-dose appointment online.

For more information about who is currently eligible to book a shortened-interval second dose appointment, please see our current second-dose schedule.
