What to expect when you get a vaccine

  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19 do not get your vaccine.
  • Take your regular medication and eat your meals as usual (we recommend eating something before you come).
  • Wear a loose-fitting top or a t-shirt so the immunizer can easily access your arm.
  • Wear your mask or face covering. If you do not have one, one will be provided to you at the door.
  • Dress for the weather. You may have to wait in line.
  • Please plan for 30 minutes to an hour for your vaccination.
  • Bring your health card (OHIP) or any government-issued photo ID if you do not have a health card to confirm your appointment.
    • If you do not have a valid health card, please bring an alternate piece of identification. This can be anything that confirms your identity and has a number/code assigned to it.
  • Review the vaccine after care information sheet that tells you what to expect after vaccination.
