COVID-19 Vaccine:

Brant Count Health Unit (BCHU) continues to have new groups eligible for the vaccine as we finish Phase 1. We will soon move into Phase 2 of the Ontario COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan  at the direction of the Ministry of Health. We encourage all patients to continue to watch or listen to local news and Brant Health Unit social media, for the most recent updates on vaccine availability.

Registration is available online at  www.bchu.org/COVID19Vaccines . You can book via phone at 519-753-4937 ext. 416 if you do not have a computer or someone to help you book online. BCHU urges all patients to book online as there is limited capacity to manage calls. Note, this is only for patients who reside in Brant County. Our patients who live in other counties will need to look to their local health unit for registration and eligibility requirements. Health cards are required when you book and when you arrive to be vaccinated and only those that are eligible now or previously (patients 80+ not yet done) will be allowed to receive their immunization at these clinics. If you book and have not yet become eligible, you will be turned away at the clinic.

Patients are reminded to not show up unless you have an appointment, there are no walk-ins allowed.

There is no timeline for when vaccines will be in Family Physicians offices, however things are progressing in the background to be prepared when enough vaccines are available to do so. Our patient records will help us identify those that are eligible when it is time, we will still not be taking lists of those wanting the vaccine. Note that Brant is not a community that is identified for the AstraZeneca vaccine that is now available for distribution in Pharmacies and Family Physicians offices.
