The vaccine prioritization described on this website is intended to provide a general overview of the groups involved in each phase of the Provincial Vaccine Distribution Plan. Specific sectors identified within the plan will be notified directly by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) or another agency or organization when they are eligible to receive the vaccine. The WECHU is committed to timely communication on vaccine availability and will communicate broadly when there are opportunities to register for the vaccine. For timely updates regarding vaccine availability please sign up for WECHU email alerts or watch our regular YouTube updates.

The Government of Ontario has developed a three-phase vaccine distribution plan that sets the order and priorities for distribution for local public health units to follow. The groups selected in each phase are based on an ethical framework established by the province. The Government of Ontario has committed to distributing COVID-19 vaccines to priority populations in the highest risk areas as shipments are received from federal government suppliers.

The COVID-19 vaccine is free to anyone living in Ontario. The vaccine is not mandatory for the public but is strongly recommended to keep yourself and the community safe. The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit began distributing and administering the first allotment of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for our community on January 1, 2021.

We are currently in Stage 1 of our local COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout Plan.
