Central Health continues to roll out COVID-19 immunizations across the region

Updated: Mar 24

On Tuesday, March 9, 2021, Central Health began vaccinating residents of Central Newfoundland aged 85 and older, First Responders and Home Support Workers.


The vaccine is being administered by the public health vaccination teams in a phased approach in many communities across Central Newfoundland.


Central Health would like to remind residents that vaccination is by appointment only and available for specific groups who have pre-registered to receive the vaccine. Those who have pre-registered and who qualify will be contacted to set up an appointment. Any resident who selected email as a contact method is asked to watch your inbox for instructions on how to self-schedule.

If you have not pre-registered to receive the vaccine and you are over the age of 70, please click here to pre-register.


For those who do not have internet access, please call:

  • 1-833-668-3930 (toll-free)

  • 273-3930 (local for St. John’s Metro area)


Central Health is following a phased approach for vaccination, as outlined in the Newfoundland and Labrador COVID-19 Immunization Plan. A copy of this plan can be found online at gov.nl.ca/covid-19/vaccine.

While waiting for your opportunity for vaccination, and even after you have been vaccinated, it is important you continue to follow public health guidance to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your communities.


This includes:

  • Wearing a mask and keeping 2 metres apart;

  • Washing your hands frequently;

  • Respecting public health guidance on gatherings, travel and quarantine;

  • Staying home and calling 8-1-1 if you feel sick.


Central Health will continue to communicate as additional vaccine information becomes available and more clinics are set up. For information on COVID-19 vaccines, please visit Health Canada.
