Youth aged 12-17 and their families and caregivers can now pre-register for COVID-19 vaccination

Tue, May 25, 2021


As announced over the weekend, Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues to expand, with youth aged 12 and over now eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, either at community clinics or at participating pharmacies.



Algoma Public Health is excited to announce that pre-registration for the COVID-19 vaccine is now available for 12–17-year-old youth and their eligible family members including siblings, parents, guardians and caregivers who have not yet received a COVID-19 immunization. 

By pre-registering, you will be contacted directly to book an appointment during the month of June, where youth 12-17 and any
family members who have not yet received their first dose may be immunized together.  The provincial government is prioritizing youth 12-17 to receive their first dose of vaccine before the end of June.

Pre-register online for a
youth aged 12-17 clinic.

If you are unable to pre-register online and need assistance registering, please call 705-541-7370 or toll-free 1-888-440-3730 and staff will be available to assist. Phone lines are open Monday – Sunday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.




For clinics at GFL Memorial Gardens in Sault Ste. Marie, check the booking website often as appointments become available.  All clinic dates will be kept updated on the Algoma Public Health website, including any new clinic dates. 

In the Algoma district, search for a 
clinic near you and follow the instructions for available clinics by municipality.




Community members who received their first dose of vaccine at the COVID-19 Community Vaccine Hub at GFL Memorial Gardens on March 5, 6, 7 & 13 are now eligible for their second dose.

You will receive information directly using the email you provided when you booked your first appointment.  Follow the link provided to book your appointment. If you provided only a phone number, someone will reach out to you directly. 


If you are having any difficulties booking your second dose appointment online or have any questions, please call Algoma Public Health at 705-541-7370 or toll-free 1-888-440-3730. Phone lines are open Monday – Sunday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.



Until the majority of community members are fully immunized, we still need to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 in our region:

  • Outdoor gatherings are limited to five people or less. 
  • Indoor gatherings with people outside of your household remain prohibited at this time.
  • Anyone who is ill, even with mild symptoms, must stay home and self-isolate away from others.
  • Avoid all non-essential travel
  • Wear a mask as required in indoor public spaces and outside when physical distancing cannot be maintained.
