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.

Influenza immunization (flu shots)

The influenza vaccine is available at many locations throughout the community including local pharmacies and health care providers’ offices. In addition, Public Health is offering the influenza vaccine throughout the district by appointment only. To book an appointment, please call 705.522.9200 (toll-free 1.866.522.9200), Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Routine immunization

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. Appointments are required to receive routine vaccinations at the clinics. You can request an appointment online or by calling our office.

You may also be able to get vaccinated at your doctor’s office, a walk-in clinic, or community health centre. Appointments may be required.

Travel immunization

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 immunization

Every year, our public health nurses visit schools to provide students in Grades 7 and 8 immunization against hepatitis B, meningococcal disease, and human papillomavirus (HPV). At this age, the vaccines are publicly funded and free of charge. Consent forms and fact sheets are sent home with every student in their agendas. Eligible students that do not receive the vaccine at their school can get it at one of Public Health’s offices.

Reminder: Immunization against meningococcal disease is required to attend school in Ontario.

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.
