Immunization (vaccination) clinic

Access to services: COVID-19

If you are visiting our office locations for clinical services, you will need to wear a mask. Certain exceptions may apply (for example, based on age or medical circumstances). We encourage you to bring your own mask. If you don’t have a mask or forgot to bring yours, we will give you one for your appointment, supplies permitting.

This requirement provides additional protection as distancing is not always guaranteed. To learn more about our services and some of the changes in place due to COVID-19, please check our Public Health services page.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts offers several immunization services.

COVID-19 vaccination clinics

Public Health offers clinics throughout the Sudbury and Manitoulin districts. Select pharmacy locations and primary care providers also offer vaccination against COVID-19. Check with your local pharmacy or health care provider for more information.

Influenza immunizations (flu shots)

The influenza vaccine is available at many locations throughout the community including local pharmacies and health care providers’ offices.

Routine immunizations

Public Health offers routine, publicly-funded immunization opportunities at select clinics for children, youth, and adults who are overdue for vaccinations because of services being temporarily paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Travel immunizations

If you live in Greater Sudbury, please contact your health care provider or the Northeast Ontario Medical Offices for international travel immunization consultation services. If you live outside of Greater Sudbury, please call our Immunization Services Line at 705.522.9200, ext. 458 or your primary care provider. For information about publicly funded vaccine eligibility, visit our online vaccination record portal to access or report vaccination records, or call 705.522.9200, ext. 458.

School immunizations

Every year, our public health nurses visit schools across our district to immunize students in Grades 7 and 8 against hepatitis B, meningococcal disease, and human papillomavirus (HPV). Consent forms and fact sheets are sent home with every student at the beginning of the school year. Consent forms and fact sheets are also digitally available. Learn more about vaccinations required to attend school and download the consent forms.

Immunization clinics for students requiring vaccines for school attendance

Public Health collects, reviews, and maintains immunization records for all students in schools in our communities as outlined in the Immunization of Schools Pupils Act, 1990, (ISPA). Each year, usually beginning in January, immunization records are assessed to ensure that students enrolled in school have the vaccines that are required for attendance. Parents are notified by letter if Public Health is missing vaccine information for students. Special immunization clinics are held for students who require vaccinations.

When a child receives a vaccine, the parent or guardian is responsible to report it to Public Health. Health care providers do not report this information to Public Health.
