March 10, 2021 - Eligible groups in Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph under Phase 2 of Ontario’s Vaccination Plan can now pre-register online at wdgpublichealth.ca/register. In addition to ongoing pre-registration for Phase 1 Priority Groups, pre-registration is now available for these additional groups:

• Congregate settings staff
• Congregate settings residents and their primary caregivers

• Essential caregivers for individuals with highest-risk health conditions

“As the vaccine supply expands, we continue to focus on vaccinating Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph against COVID-19 as quickly as possible,” said Dr. Nicola Mercer, Medical Officer of Health and CEO of WDG Public Health. “The Province’s rapid distribution of vaccines across Ontario has facilitated the progress we are seeing in protecting the most vulnerable residents of our region.”
Public Health encourages everyone who can pre-register online to do so. There is a help line available (1-844-780-0202) for those having trouble pre-registering. Call volumes are high, so individuals using the help line should be aware that it could take several days to receive a response.
“We are grateful for the leadership of many partners from across our region as we work to end this pandemic. The contributions from across the healthcare system (through our Ontario Health Teams), municipal governments, the private sector and the public sector show a serious commitment to tackling COVID-19 together,” said Dr. Mercer.
