Same-day COVID-19 Vaccine Standby List Launched

NIPISSING & PARRY SOUND, ON – Effective May 20, 2021 the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit (Health Unit) will implement a COVID-19 vaccine standby list for individuals wanting their first vaccine dose. The standby list is available each day clinics are running through a link on our website’s COVID-19 vaccine appointments page. The link will open a form where individuals that are in an age group that is currently eligible can provide their name and phone number to be put on the standby list. Only names entered on the form starting at 9 a.m. each day will be added to the stadby list. At the end of each day the standby list will be deleted and a new standby list will start the next day at 9 a.m. Individuals cannot call the Health Unit to be put on the standby list.

Having their name on the list does not mean an individual is sure to get an appointment. If no call is received by the end of the day, individuals are welcome to put their name on the list for the next available clinic another day. As there is no guarantee, we ask that individuals who already have an appointment booked not cancel their appointment until after they have received their vaccination.
