Step 1: Vaccine Eligibility

Do you need a First and/or Second Dose?

Ages 5-11:

All residents turning 5-11 years of age in 2021 are eligible to receive the paediatric dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Residents can book their first dose starting November 23. Residents must wait 56 days (8 weeks) after receiving their first dose to receive a second dose to complete the COVID-19 vaccine series. A second dose can be booked after the first dose is administered. Learn more about the paediatric COVID-19 vaccine or book a COVID-19 appointment.

Ages 12+:

All residents who are turning 12 years of age in 2021 or older are eligible to receive 2 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Residents can receive their first and second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at any Peterborough Public Health COVID-19 vaccine clinic. Residents turning 12 years of age or older in 2021 who require a first or second dose are able to walk-in to any 12+ vaccine clinic or book an appointment. Residents 12+ will not be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at a youth (ages 5-11) COVID-19 vaccine clinic. The recommended interval of time between first and second doses is 8 weeks.

Do you need a Booster Dose?
On November 3, the province of Ontario approved the administration of booster doses to select residents. A comprehensive list of those who are eligible for a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine can be found on the Ontario Vaccine Third Dose Guidance Document. These residents must wait until at least 168 days (6 months) after their second dose to receive a booster dose. Use this guide to determine when you have reached your 168 day interval.

Check out the provincial vaccine booking system for booster dose eligibility. ALL booster dose appointments will need to be booked to attend a Peterborough Public Health vaccine clinic.

Indigenous residents and their non-Indigenous household members are eligible for a booster dose at least 168 days after their second dose was received. Learn more about the booster dose for Indigenous adults.

Do you need a Third Dose?

Residents who have a health condition that would make them immunocompromised or who are on immunosuppressant medication are eligible for a third dose at least 2 months after their second dose. A comprehensive list of medications and health conditions that would make someone eligible for a third dose can be found on the Ontario COVID-19 Vaccine Third Dose Guidance Document. 

Residents who are eligible for a third dose MUST obtain a referral form from their healthcare provider or bring in a prescription with the eligible medication. With this proof, reisdnets can walk-in to any Peterborough Public Health COVID-19 vaccine clinic to receive a third dose.


Step 2: Vaccine Clinic Schedule

Residents who can walk-in to a clinic:

  • residents turning 12 years of age or older in 2021 and require a first or second dose

Residents who MUST book an appointment:

  • residents turning 5-11 years of age in 2021 and require a first and second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • residents who need a booster dose. Check eligibility for booster doses with the provincial vaccine booking system

Interval between doses:

  • A 56 day (8 week) interval between first and second doses is recommended. For residents ages 5-11, a 56 day interval is required between first and second doses.
  • Booster doses of Moderna or Pfizer are recommended to be administered 6 months after receiving the second dose, at the earliest
  • Residents who are considered to be immunocompromised or on immunosuppressant medication can receive a third dose at 56 days after the second dose was received, at the earliest. These residents must have a physician referral or proof of medication at the appointment

As of September 29, Ontario issues a preferential recommendation for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to be used for residents 24 years of age or younger. Please note – residents over the age of 24 can use Pfizer or Moderna.

Booking for Residents that do not have an Ontario Health Card

To start this process, individuals must complete a form to let us know they do not have an Ontario health card, provide their contact information, and confirm eligibility. This will allow our team to follow up as appropriate to verify your identity. There are two options to begin the process:

  1. Complete the form online here OR
