If you received your first dose at the GFL Memorial Gardens after May 1, we will no longer be sending emails or calling you directly. You can now book into one of the clinics being added throughout July and not wait for a specific appointment.
If you booked your first appointment from one of the Family Health Teams in the district, they will call you directly to schedule your second dose appointment.
Sault Ste. Marie Vaccine Availability Tracker
The Algoma Ontario Health Team and Algoma Public Health have partnered with the Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre and local clinics to create a new SSM Vaccine Availability Tracker<https://www.algomapublichealth.com/disease-and-illness/infectious-diseases/novel-coronavirus/covid-19-vaccine/sault-ste-marie-vaccine-availability-tracker/>. This tracker is an easy way for community members to identify which participating clinics have vaccine available and access eligibility and booking information. Check back regularly for vaccine availability!
