Flu and COVID-19 shots only by appointment say RCDHU

Renfrew County and District Health Unit (RCDHU) is announcing changes to their COVID-19
and flu vaccine clinics. Starting October 20th, COVID-19 vaccinations will now be offered by
appointment only.

“We have seen very high attendance at our recent clinics, which has resulted in longer wait
times for residents. To better serve our community, we are shifting to appointment-based
clinics moving forward. We are pleased to see such high attendance and vaccine uptake in
Renfrew County and District, and we are working to ensure that everyone who wants a
vaccine has access,
” states Dr. Jason Morgenstern, Medical Officer of Health for RCDHU.

For those looking for COVID-19 AND flu immunization:

  • COVID-19 immunization appointments must be booked through the Ontario Provincial Appointment Booking system.
  • Flu vaccines will also be available at the time of your appointment, should you choose to get one at that time. You do not need to indicate this when booking your appointment.
  • Please note, appointments cannot be booked directly through RCDHU. If you need assistance booking an appointment, please contact the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900.

For those looking for a flu shot only:
