In an effort to inform and maintain local vaccination records, Lambton Public Health (LPH) is releasing a survey to the residents of Lambton County today to gather information regarding COVID-19 vaccinations administered out-of-province and out-of-country.

Those who have received vaccinations outside of Ontario and maintain a full-time or seasonal residence within Lambton County are requested to complete the survey on the Vaccination Reporting Page of Lambton Public Health’s Website.

The purpose of the survey is to gather and store information about vaccines administered to residents of Lambton County outside of the Province of Ontario, as the current Government of Ontario vaccination database (COVAX) does not permit out-of-province entries at this time.

The information gathered in the survey will be kept confidential by Lambton Public Health until it can be transferred to the Provincial database. Once the Provincial vaccination database permits, eligible residents of Lambton County who completed the survey will be contacted by Lambton Public Healthto confirm the information gathered and provide further proof of vaccination.

This survey is only intended for use by full-time and seasonal residents of Lambton County who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine outside of the Province of Ontario. Please only complete the survey if you are eligible.

For those individuals who have received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine outside of Ontario/Canada, and need to receive a second dose in Lambton County, please complete the survey and contact the Vaccine Call Centre Directly To book your second dose appointment. Those who have been fully vaccinated out-of-province do not need to contact the Vaccine Call Centre. However, Lambton Public Health requests that those who have been fully vaccinated outside of Ontario/Canadacomplete the survey at their earliest convenience.

If you have further questions please contact Lambton Public Health’s Vaccine Call Centre from Monday to Friday (9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) at 226-254-8222.
