Booking an appointment

  • All Ontarians turning 5 in 2021 and older, or an individual trusted to make an appointment on their behalf, can book appointments for their first, second, and booster vaccine dose through the Provincial booking system.  
  • Have questions about the vaccine or eligibility? Please e-mail Niagara Region Public Health to have your questions answered.
  • Booster doses are being offered to these groups based on evidence of gradual waning immunity six months after receiving their second dose and a higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. 
    • Individuals aged 70 and over (born in 1951 or earlier); 
    • Health care workers and designated essential caregivers in congregate settings (including long-term care home and retirement home staff and designated caregivers);

    • First Nation, Inuit and Métis adults and their non-Indigenous household members.

Niagara Region Vaccination Sites

Niagara Region Public Health has established a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Schedule offering clinics throughout the region.  A number of clinics have been added to the provincial booking system for those 5-11 years old.  More dates will be added as vaccine supplies become available.

Public Health clinics will be prioritizing those 5-11 year olds and not taking bookings for other age groups during this time. Anyone who is 12 years of age or older and is looking to get a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is invited to check with a participating pharmacy or family doctor's office to get the vaccine.


  • Lincoln residents can register for any vaccine clinic site in the Niagara Region or across the province.

  • The Lincoln Community Centre (Seniors Centre) is no longer a vaccination site.

  • GO-VAXX buses are fully functioning vaccine clinics with the necessary supplies and trained staff to provide vaccines safely. The GO-VAXX buses are travelling to malls, festivals, community hubs and events throughout the summer and fall across the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

Pharmacies 

  • The Pfizer, Pediatric Pfizer, and Moderna vaccine is available in select pharmacies for those turning 5 in 2021 or older.  
  • The Province of Ontario recommends the use of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine over Moderna for individuals Aged 18-24 years old.
