New guidance on third doses for special populations

A complete two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series provides strong protection against COVID-19 infection and severe outcomes, including against the Delta variant of concern, for most people. However, certain people who have underlying medical conditions that compromise their immunity are at an increased risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 and have demonstrated the need to have a third dose.

In keeping with the Ministry of Health recommendations, Lakeridge Health has made the third dose available for individuals who qualify. (We ask individuals to speak to their primary care provider if they are unsure whether they need a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.)

For Primary Care Providers and Specialists: Please use this form to refer patients for a third dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at the Oshawa vaccine clinic run by Lakeridge Health.

  • The form must be completed and faxed to 905-721-4876.
  • The clinic will contact the patient to schedule an appointment upon receipt of the form.

Walk-in patients with the form in hand will not be accepted. The form must be faxed by the primary care provider/specialist

Ajax and Oshawa Vaccination Clinics Remaining Open

Durham Region Health Department and Lakeridge Health have extended the timeline for the COVID-19 mass immunization clinics located in Oshawa and Ajax to remain open until the end of 2021. These clinics were slated to close by mid to late September, but both clinics will now remain open, joining the list of walk-in, pop-up, and mobile clinics being offered in numerous communities throughout Durham Region.

Both COVID-19 immunization clinics at the Audley Recreation Centre in Ajax (run by Durham Region Health Department) and the Ontario Tech Campus Ice Centre in Oshawa (run by Lakeridge Health) will provide access for walk-in opportunities and booking appointments.
