Public Health Sudbury & Districts is offering several convenient opportunities in the Sudbury and Manitoulin districts this week to help you get your COVID-19 vaccine. Dedicated COVID-19 vaccine clinics for youth and their families will continue to be held throughout Sudbury and districts in June. It is highly recommended you receive all COVID-19 vaccines for which you are eligible—including booster dose(s)—to stay up-to-date and to build long-term protection against COVID-19. See below for this week’s opportunities.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts is excited to announce that we are increasing immunization opportunities for children, youth, and adults throughout Sudbury and the surrounding districts.

Clinic services

Sensory-friendly service (COVID-19)

Sensory-friendly services may be available and include a private immunization station at one of our mass clinics where lights can be dimmed, noise kept to a minimum, and extra time is allotted for the appointment.

Vaccine-to-vehicle service (COVID-19)

Vaccine-to-vehicle is a service available at select mass immunization clinics for individuals who are unable to receive their vaccine within a clinic setting for reasons such as sensory sensitivities, decreased mobility, or other health concerns. An immunizer will come outside to the parking lot to provide the vaccine to individuals in their vehicle. Please note that during extreme weather or extreme cold that your appointment may be rebooked to ensure everyone’s safety.

Appointments for sensory-friendly or vaccine-to-vehicle services can only be booked by phone at 705.522.9200 (toll-free: 1.866.522.9200). The call centre is open Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and is closed on statutory holidays. Booking online is not available.

Questions about vaccination

Whether you have questions about getting your first, second, third, or booster dose of vaccine or you have questions about youth vaccination, our clinic immunizers as well as our call centre staff can help answer your questions. Your health care provider is also a trusted source of reliable and credible information. Choosing vaccination is a choice and everyone deserves to have the information they need to be well informed.

Vaccine brands offered and supplies

Learn about the Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccines (Health Canada).

COVID-19 mRNA vaccines

All Public Health clinics offer COVID-19 mRNA vaccine brands—either Moderna Spikevax or Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty (pediatric and adult doses). Based on vaccine supplies, the vaccine brand planned for use at any clinic is subject to change, possibly with limited notice. We encourage you to ask our immunizers for more information to help you make an informed decision and feel comfortable about getting either vaccine brand. To learn which mRNA vaccine brands are planned for our clinics, visit

Non-mRNA COVID-19 vaccines

Currently, mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty or Moderna Spikevax) are the preferred COVID-19 vaccine options for the primary series and booster doses administered at all Public Health clinics. However, Public Health also keeps a limited supply of Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) and Novavax (Nuvaxovid), non-mRNA vaccines, which can be used for a primary series or booster dose based on eligibility.

Appointments can be booked for a non-mRNA COVID-19 vaccine by calling 705.522.9200 (toll-free: 1.866.522.9200) and providing a representative with your name and contact information. A representative will call you back to schedule an appointment once enough individuals have requested to receive a non-mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.


COVID-19 vaccines

In Ontario, you are considered up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines when you have received all recommended doses, including any booster dose(s) that you are eligible for. Visit for information on when you should be vaccinated based on the type of vaccine you should receive, your age, your health status, and if you recently had a COVID-19 infection.

Routine vaccination

Routine, publicly-funded vaccines will be offered to those overdue for routine childhood vaccines, including youth born in 2006, 2007, or 2008 overdue for hepatitis B and meningococcal vaccines; youth born in 2002, 2003, or 2004 for human papillomavirus virus vaccines; and youth and adults overdue for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis containing vaccines.

Preparing for a vaccination appointment

All vaccination clinics have COVID-safety measures in place. You must not attend a clinic if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or if you are in isolation due to a COVID-19 exposure.

  • Bring your health card. If you do not have a health card or your health card is expired, bring another form of government-issued photo identification such as a driver’s license, passport, Status card, or birth certificate.
  • Eat and drink something before you arrive at your appointment to prevent feeling faint or dizzy while being vaccinated.
  • Do not show up until 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
  • When possible, please limit the number of support people attending a vaccination clinic to one person.
  • Dress for the weather, you may have to wait in line if you plan on attending a walk-in clinic.
  • Wear a top that allows for easy access to the upper arm such as a loose-fitting top or a T-shirt.
  • Wear a medical mask that covers your nose, mouth, and chin. If you do not have a medical mask, pediatric and adult medical masks will be available at the entrance to the clinic.
  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19, do not attend the clinic.
