First dose booking information:

  • All eligible individuals are encouraged to book online using the provincial tool. Individuals who need assistance booking may contact the provincial call centre at 1-833-943-3900. Individuals unable to book an appointment for their first dose are encouraged to add their names to the waitlist at hnhu.org/vaccine-waitlist.

At the time of first dose booking, a second dose appointment will be generated for youth (during the month of August), with the aim of having all students fully vaccinated by the time they return to school.
