COVID-19 pop-up and walk-in vaccination clinics available in Simcoe Muskoka

Mar 21, 2022
SIMCOE MUSKOKA – The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit is offering one-day pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics at locations throughout Simcoe Muskoka from March 21 to 27.

SIMCOE MUSKOKA – The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit is offering one-day pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics at locations throughout Simcoe Muskoka from March 21 to 27. Walk-ins for first, second, third and booster doses for individuals 12 and up, as well as first and second dose paediatric Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children aged five to 11 are available on a first-come basis.

The health unit strongly encourages those who are eligible to get their vaccine, particularly a booster dose, as soon as they can as a booster dose helps to reduce your risk for severe illness and chance of requiring hospitalization if you become infected with COVID-19. Youth aged 12 to 17 are eligible for a booster shot at least six months (or 168 days) after they received their second dose, while adults 18 years and older can receive a booster three months (84 days) after their second dose.

To provide opportunities for residents to get their COVID-19 vaccination quickly and conveniently, pop-up clinics are scheduled for the following dates and locations:

Monday, March 21

Please note that the COVID-19 Immunization Clinic at 29 Sperling Dr. in Barrie continues to accept walk-ins and scheduled appointments, which can be booked through the COVID-19 vaccination portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900. Other options for accessing the vaccine include through the Couchiching Ontario Health Team Clinic, and select pharmacies and primary care offices. 

When attending a clinic, individuals are encouraged to dress for the weather as they may be required to wait outdoors before entering the clinic. They are also reminded to bring identification (e.g., health card, driver’s license, passport) a list of any medications they are taking, wear a loose-fitting shirt that allows easy access to the upper arm and bring any assistive devices as needed (e.g., scooter, wheelchair, cane).  

Please note, all persons attending a Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit community or school-based vaccination clinic will be required to wear a mask. Masks will be made available at the entrance to all our clinics.

For more information about how to prepare for an appointment and what to expect upon arrival at the clinic, please visit our COVID-19 pages at smdhu.org/getvaccinated.
