The Windsor Essex County Health Unit has made booking booster doses available on their online booking system.

As of 3:00pm Wednesday, prioritized groups will be eligible to book their third dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine in Windsor and Essex County.

The Health Unit says third doses will be available for individuals who have received their second dose at least six (6) months ago and are:

  • individuals over the age of 70 years (those born in 1951 or earlier); or
  • Health care workers and designated essential caregivers in congregate settings (including long-term care home and retirement home staff and designated caregivers); or
  • Indigenous populations; or
  • those that live with an individual that identifies as Indigenous; or
  • those who received the series of AstraZeneca vaccine or Johnson and Johnson vaccine
    • Individuals who received two doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine will receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine as their third dose. If you received an mRNA as your initial two doses the third dose should be the same vaccine product as the second dose.

They say eligible residents can get their third dose at the following locations in Windsor and Essex County:

  • The COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic at Devonshire Mall. No walk-ins will be accepted at this time for third doses. To book an appointment, visit the Health Unit’s online booking system or call the vaccination booking call center at 226-773-2200 for assistance.
  • Participating pharmacies throughout Windsor-Essex.
  • Participating healthcare providers.
  • Pop-up vaccination clinics throughout Windsor and Essex County.

The Health Unit also has a chart showing the dates people will become eligible for their third dose, based on the date of their second dose.  You can find that chart here.
