Vaccine Clinic Calendar is Updated Weekly

Starting February 18, residents aged 12-17 years are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster dose at a date that is at least 6 months (168 days) after their second dose was received. Residents must be at least 12 years of age to book a booster dose appointment.

At this time, residents 12-17 years of age who require a booster dose are asked to book an appointment through the provincial vaccine booking system. Appointments can be booked:

Residents can still receive a COVID-19 vaccine from participating pharmacies. Pharmacy locations can be found on the provincial webpage at

“Two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are no longer enough to prevent infection,” said Dr. Thomas Piggott, Medical Officer of Health. “We are seeing that three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are more effective at reducing a person’s risk of hospitalization. It is also more effective at preventing infection altogether.”

Peterborough Public Health will continue to host COVID-19 vaccine clinics throughout Peterborough County and City. Dr. Piggott encourages residents to review the COVID-19 vaccine clinic calendar to find a location near them. “The clinic calendar contains information on the COVID-19 vaccine clinics that we are hosting. We encourage residents to view the eligibility criteria and booking details for a clinic before attending,” said Dr. Piggott.
