Supporting your child to be vaccinated against COVID-19 is an important step in the fight against this disease. It will be a key factor in helping our school community return to a sense of normalcy and will benefit overall physical and mental health for children, youth and their families.  Although youth are less likely to experience serious illness from COVID-19, some young people do get sick and require hospitalization. Vaccines are the best way to prevent this from happening. They protect us by helping our body build immunity and decrease our chance of spreading it to others. Millions of doses have already been given to youth worldwide and are proven to work well and be very safe. 

General Information

  • Clinics will be available for youth 12 to 17 years of age from June 14 to June 21, 2021. Booking is now open. 
  • Second dose appointments for youth are expected to take place the weeks of August 9 and August 16, 2021. 
  • You must have an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at a clinic.
  • Parents and guardians will not be able to receive a vaccine at the youth-designated clinics, however, they may accompany their child to the appointment (optional).
  • To help avoid crowding and make the process as smooth as possible for everyone, we kindly ask that you arrive no more than ten minutes before your appointment time.
  • Individuals 12 to 17 years of age may also receive a vaccine at one of our other clinics or a pharmacy where Pfizer is available. Youth attending a clinic for the general population should contact the Health Unit (1-844-478-1400)  directly to ensure Pfizer will be available at the time of their appointment, or contact the pharmacy directly if receiving the vaccine there.
  • At this time, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is the only one that has been approved for individuals in this age group.

Age and Consent

  • Youth must be no younger than 12 at the time of their appointment.
  • Parent/guardian consent is not required for youth to receive the vaccine.  
    • Under the provincial Health Care Consent Act (HCCA), there is no minimum age requirement to provide consent for vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines are only provided if informed consent is received from the person to be vaccinated, including those aged 12 to 17, and as long as they have the capacity to make this decision.
