The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) is expanding access to COVID-19 vaccines. Adults 70 or older can now pre-register for an appointment to get the shot, as can any healthcare worker who hasn’t done so yet.
As part of the inoculation program’s Phase 2 rollout, the SMDHU is now allowing those born in 1951 or prior to pre-register online, while any remaining healthcare worker can do the same.
Once someone pre-registers on the health unit website, they’ll be placed in a queue to receive a vaccine appointment and will be sent an email from the province with a booking code when appointments become available.
Those folks in Phase 1 of the program can still pre-register if they’ve not yet done so. This includes all Indigenous adults and their household members who are 16 years of age or older, as well as caregivers to residents of long-term care, and those receiving chronic home healthcare.
