As of 10 a.m. today, individuals who were vaccinated from out of province or country can register their information through a dedicated and secure Windsor-Essex County Health Unit online registration form. The registration process applies to the following individuals:
- If you live Windsor or Essex County and received one or two doses of a COVID vaccine outside Ontario, you can document your COVID-19 vaccinations.
- Some people vaccinated in Ontario received vaccine from what is referred to as non-Ontario stock. Generally these doses were delivered at institutions such as correctional facilities, military sites or embassies. People who received one or two doses of vaccine from the non-Ontario stock may also document them.
- For those who received a vaccine authorized for Emergency Use by the World Health Organization (WHO), but not Canada, please note that you can still submit your information. Your doses are considered valid in Ontario, but we are unable to load your records into the COVax system at this time. You will be notified once this is possible.
- Individuals who received one or two doses of a vaccine that has not been authorized by Health Canada nor the WHO should consider a new series of a Health Canada authorized vaccine. For more information, see the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 Guidance for Individuals Vaccinated outside of Ontario/Canada
To complete the registration process, individuals will be required to submit proof of vaccination. If you do not have proof of vaccination, please contact the health care provider who gave you the COVID-19 vaccine(s) to receive a copy of your vaccination record. A phone number and/or email address will be required so that the WECHU can contact you for follow-up, if needed.
For individuals who may have questions about the registration process, please contact the WECHU call centre at 519-258-2146 and select 6 to speak to a representative. For questions about privacy of the information, please email the WECHU’s Privacy Officer at email@example.com.
