We are pleased to share the following email below: IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Pre-Registration Process for COVID-19 Vaccine Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health is inviting members of certain prioritized groups to pre-register for upcoming COVID-19 vaccination appointments. Demand for the COVID-19 vaccine is currently higher than available supply and prioritization is necessary to determine eligibility. Health Care Workers from all priority levels are now eligible to pre-register (as per COVID-19: Guidance for Prioritizing Health Care Workers for COVID-19 Vaccination). Health Care Workers will be prioritized based on the information they provide on the pre-registration form. WDGPH is asking for your immediate action to share this information with eligible health care workers.
