COVID-19 Vaccine Update

In June, we confirmed supply of MODERNA mRNA vaccines from Toronto Public Health. We are eager to be a part of the vaccine solution for our clients and community and we intend to work with local authorities to support vaccination efforts.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Presently in Ontario, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are being offered for first doses. Individuals are encouraged to take the first vaccine offered to them.

From June 10th to September 2nd, Medcan participated in Toronto Public Health’s Primary Care COVID-19 Vaccine Program. We were able to immunize about 600 individuals.

With decreasing demand into the fall, Medcan has suspended its COVID-19 vaccine clinic. Boosters (3+ doses) are not available at this time. We will update this page should our operations resume. If you have any further questions about our COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic, please email COVIDVaccine@medcan.com.

No. The U.S. is required to distribute vaccines according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state guidelines. Medcan does not have any U.S. connections.

No. Medcan will follow the province’s eligibility criteria and direction provided by local health authorities to support the vaccine rollout

Medcan is unable to book vaccines as we do not have direct access to the Ontario Booking Portal for COVID-19 Vaccinations. Those eligible for vaccination can book online at www.ontario.ca/bookvaccine or by phone at 1.888.999.6488. Please note: Due to a high level of traffic, there may be longer wait times to access the system.

Based on the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and in alignment with the National Advisory Committee on Immunization’s (NACI) recent recommendation, the province will begin offering booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to the following vulnerable populations if at least six months have passed since their last dose:

  • Individuals aged 70 and over (born in 1951 or earlier);
  • Health care workers and designated essential caregivers in congregate settings (including long-term care home and retirement home staff and designated caregivers);
  • Individuals who received a complete series of a viral vector vaccine (two doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine or one dose of the Janssen vaccine); and
  • First Nation, Inuit and Métis adults and their non-Indigenous household members.

Booster doses are being offered to these groups based on evidence of gradual waning immunity six months after receiving their second dose and a higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19.

Starting on Saturday, November 6 at 8:00 a.m., eligible individuals will be able to book their booster dose appointment through the COVID-19 vaccination portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre, directly through public health units that use their own booking systems, through Indigenous-led vaccination clinics, select pharmacies, and primary care settings. Hospital-based health care workers are encouraged to reach out to their hospital employer to get vaccinated directly through their hospital’s vaccination program.

Currently, Medcan is not administering COVID-19 booster doses. We will follow the provincial government regulations and Toronto Public Health’s guidance prior to roll-out of any vaccination program. Check back here for updates.
