The Windsor Essex County Health Unit is looking for people who were vaccinated for COVID-19 outside of Ontario so that they can add to the total number of Windsor Essex residents that are counted as having been vaccinated.

The Health Unit has created a brief questionnaire and are requesting that those who received their vaccine outside of Ontario take five minutes to visit their website to contribute to a more accurate representation of local COVID-19 vaccination coverage.

Those eligible to complete the questionnaire are Windsor-Essex residents that have received their COVID-19 vaccine in Michigan (including Detroit), another state in the U.S., another province outside of Ontario, or another Country outside of Canada or the United States.

“Since the beginning of the vaccination effort, a number of essential workers, travellers, and other current Windsor-Essex residents were vaccinated elsewhere and are not included in our counts,” says Health Unit CEO Theresa Marentette.
“Documentation systems differ from province to province and country to country, so the health unit is looking for help from these residents to improve our understanding of current residents who have received one or two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.”

Officials say completion of the questionnaire however does not register you for a second dose if you have received your first dose elsewhere.

The questionnaire can be accessed at www.wechu.org/cv/vaccine. The Health Unit says responses are anonymous and confidential.

If you have any questions about the questionnaire you can contact the Health Unit at 519-258-2146 ext. 1285.
