COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan

The Province of Ontario is rolling out its three-phased vaccination distribution implementation plan.

In turn, Durham Region’s COVID-19 Vaccine Steering Table (with representation from Durham Region Health Department, Lakeridge Hospital, and local primary care physicians) is currently developing the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan for Durham residents based on availability.

Pickering will host one of Durham's first vaccination clinics at the Chestnut Hill Developments Recreation Complex. 

Beginning Monday, March 8 at 8 am, Durham residents—who are over the age of 80—can register for COVID-19 vaccine appointments online at www.durham.ca/Vaccineappointment or via telephone at 1-800-841-2729.

Clinics are available by appointment only. No walk-ins—those who show up at clinics without an appointment, will not be permitted to enter.
