When You Arrive for Vaccination
People are asked to arrive 5 minutes before their scheduled appointment time and bring their booking confirmation number or booking code, their green health card or other government-issued photo ID, and a mask.
Once the shot has been administered, residents will be asked to sit for 15 minutes in a waiting area and will then receive proof of vaccination to take home.
Niagara transit operators are providing free rides to and from vaccination appointments.
