From Peterborough Public Health:
On Thursday May 6th at 8am, agriculture and farm workers will be eligible to book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment as part of essential workers who cannot work from home Group 1. This eligibility will open across the province.
Further details are provided in Ontario’s Guidance for Prioritization of Phase 2 Populations for COVID-19 Vaccination (p.18 -22).
Appointments can be booked through the Provincial Online Booking System (https://covid-19.ontario.ca/book-vaccine/) and Provincial Vaccine Booking Line (1-833-943-3900: open 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. seven days a week).
Essential workers will need to attest that they work in agriculture. They are also required to bring proof of employment to the vaccine appointment (pay stub, name badge, Farm Business Registration Number etc…).
Group One workers who are eligible to book their vaccine appointment on May 6th are asked to be patient, as it could take time for an appointment to be available. Keep checking regularly, as more appointments are added on an on-going basis.
