Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of identification should I bring? Identification is not required to get your vaccine. But if you have an OHIP card or other identification, please bring it with you as it will help with the registration process.
Can I drop in to get a vaccine without an appointment? Appointments are preferred, but we also accept walk-in/same day appointments while vaccines last.
Can the vaccines be mixed between 1st and 2nd doses? Yes, NACI and government both have approved Interchangeability, it is safe to do mixing and matching.We will match the vaccine you received for your first dose where possible. If that is not possible, such as due to supply limitations, we will supply you with another mRNA vaccine if that is your choice.
This clinic is required to follow this direction and is not able to make any exceptions, except for the above groups. If you have further questions about Ontario’s vaccination plan, please call 1-888-999-6488 or visit: covid-19.ontario.ca/covid-19-vaccines-ontario
