Wellington County Library Staff to Assist Residents with Online COVID-19 Vaccination Pre-Registration

Posted On Tuesday February 23, 2021

WELLINGTON COUNTY, ON - Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health (WDGPH) recently launched an online pre-registration website for COVID-19 vaccination priority groups. The online booking system is the fastest way to get registered for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

“The County of Wellington continues to find new ways to actively support WDGPH with the vaccine distribution effort,” said Warden Kelly Linton. “We have been hearing that some of our residents are having difficulty pre-registering online. Starting today, Wellington County Library staff at all 14 branches are available to help residents register online. Thanks to our County staff for once again stepping up to the plate!”

Residents needing assistance can call their local Wellington County Library Branch to make an appointment to come into the branch to successfully complete the online pre-registration with assistance. If residents have a computer, cell phone and an email address, staff may be able to assist them over the phone.

“On behalf on Public Health, thank you to the Wellington County Library and Wellington County for ensuring seniors are able to access the COVID-19 vaccine,” commented Dr. Nicola Mercer, Medical Officer of Health and CEO of WDG Public Health. “The support of leadership and staff at the library is further evidence that Wellington County is doing all they can to support our region’s goal of vaccinating 75% of the population by August.”

“Our Library staff are ready to help out in any way we can,” commented Chief Librarian Rebecca Hine. “If you need assistance completing your COVID-19 pre-registration online form, please call your local library branch today.”

What you will need to pre-register online:

  • Your contact information including address
  • A cell phone number
  • An email address
  • Your health card number
  • About your position and role (for occupation-based priority groups)

If you don’t have an email address or a cell phone number, and do not have a family member or friend to assist you, you can call 519.822.2715 X 4506 for assistance. Call volumes are extremely high. Please be patient and expect significant delays.
