COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Vaccines continue to be rolled out across Niagara according to the Provincial Plan. Patients born in 1951 or earlier (70+ years of age) can now book their vaccine online or by phone using the provincial portal. Adults 65 or older can put their names on a standby list. Adults 55 and older can book at select local pharmacies. The NNFHT will continue to share information regarding vaccine distribution to the community as it becomes available. Keep an eye on our website, Facebook and be sure you are signed up for the Pomelo Patient portal to receive updates from our team.

COVID-19 TESTING AT LOCAL ASSESSMENT CENTRES

Those experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can BOOK ONLINE or CALL to schedule a COVID-19 test at one of the local assessment centres. Scroll down for more info.

Virtual Care

The risks that COVID-19 present means that the majority of patient visits have and will continue to be done virtually either over the phone or using a video visit. This means that most non-essential visits will not be booked in person and/or some regular scheduled non-essential bookings may be delayed. If your healthcare needs cannot be met over the phone or over video, it is at your healthcare provider's discretion to bring you in to the office. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
