It is of the utmost importance to get tested for COVID-19 at the onset of any symptoms, regardless of your vaccination status, even if you feel your symptoms are a common cold or allergies. If you’ve been tested for COVID-19, and are awaiting your results, please stay in isolation until you’ve been advised by a healthcare professional.
COVID-19 vaccines will be administered by appointment only moving forward; weekly clinics will no longer be held unless a need is identified. Call the Community Health Program at 613-575-2341 ext. 3220 to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
Community members can email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination receipts. In your email request, please be sure to include your name and date of birth. Community Health Program staff will input the record of your dose into the Ontario Health Provincial System. Once your information has been input into the system, the province will send the receipt via email with your official Ontario COVID-19 vaccination receipts in 1-3 business days.
