Renfrew County and District vaccination status at July 26
As of July 26, 135,371 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered through one of several COVID-19 vaccination clinics across Renfrew County and District (RCD) with 80.9 percent of RCDHU adults (aged 12+, including Canadian Armed Forces Members) having received at least one dose (71.3 percent have received two doses). This means that there are roughly 18,000 eligible residents that have not received at least one dose.
Remember: Even if you have been vaccinated, it is important to continue following public health measures, such as physical distancing, wearing a mask and hand hygiene.
Proof of vaccination
If you received your first dose outside of Ontario and are due to receive your second dose locally, we ask that residents please submit their proof of first dose to us at least three business days prior to attending your second dose appointment.
Residents can submit proof of vaccination by contacting Renfrew County and District Health Unit (RCDHU) at 613-732-3629 ext. 200. Please leave one message with a name and phone number, and someone will return the call as soon as possible.
Residents will also be asked to provide a physical copy of vaccination documentation by either bringing it to the health unit in person or sending it via email.
Youth 12 to 17 years of age are eligible to book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
Youth second dose appointments must be scheduled at least 28 days after the first dose. Indigenous youth may book a second dose appointment three weeks after their first.
