Laclie Pharmacy Is Conducting Moderna Vaccinations! 

Please read the information below before clicking the “Sign up Now” button :)  

We love helping our amazing customers but we’re asking if you can please read the information below before calling the pharmacy.  Our staff will be referring all calls to the link above for booking yourself onto the waitlist.  We would like to keep our phone lines available for medication related questions and ordering prescriptions.  If the information below doesn’t answer your question then please call us and we will do our best to help. 

We have had a strong demand for our vaccination clinic and all the doses we have received have been allocated to vaccine appointments for the week of June 14th-June 18th.  When we receive another shipment of vaccine we will send out more booking links for vaccination appointments.    

Please sign up to the waitlist if you would like to be sent a booking link as more vaccine arrives.  

 
How does the waitlist work?    
 
The waitlist will compile a list of all those who would like a vaccine.  It will ask you specific questions about your age, any health conditions, health care or frontline worker, chronic diseases etc, phone number and email address.  When certain amount of vaccine arrives at the pharmacy we will email out a Booking Link to the same amount of patients from our list who meet the Ontario Government current criteria for receiving a vaccine.  That Booking Link will be active for only a certain number of hours and will give those patients the ability to pick an appointment time for their vaccination. 
 
Who can go onto our waitlist?

We encourage anyone to sign up to our waitlist.  This will let us know that you are in need of a vaccine.  The guidlines on who we can give vaccine to are changing quickly.  Currently we are dispensing Moderna vaccine to anyone who meets one of these criteria:

1. Is 18+ and is looking for a first dose of Moderna
2. Had Moderna first dose on or before April 18th and wants a second dose
3. Had Astra Zeneca first dose more than 8 weeks ago and wants Moderna as a second dose. 
4. Is 70+ and had Moderna first dose more than 28 days ago. 

On Monday June 21st it will change to:

1. Is 18+ and is looking for a first dose of Moderna
2. Had Moderna first dose on or before May 9th and wants a second dose
3. Had Astra Zeneca first dose more than 8 weeks ago and wants Moderna as a second dose. 
4. Is 70+ and had Moderna first dose more than 28 days ago. 

On Wednesday June 23rd it will change to

1. Is 18+ and is looking for a first dose of Moderna
2. Had Moderna first dose on or before May 30th and it has been at lease 28 days since their first dose.  
3. Had Astra Zeneca first dose more than 8 weeks ago and wants Moderna as a second dose. 
4. Is 70+ and had Moderna first dose more than 28 days ago. 


If you have received a first dose of Pfizer please try to get yourself into a pharmacy or health unit clinic that is dispensing Pfizer.  Current guidelines are recommending that second doses of mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) be the same vaccine type as your first dose unless that vaccine type isn’t readily available in our area.  Currently there are locations in our area dispensing Pfizer.  Please go to ontario.ca/covidvaccine to find a local pharmacy currently dispensing Pfizer if you’re looking for a second dose Pfizer vaccine. 
 
 
Are there other places to get the COVID-19 vaccine?
 
Yes, you can also try the Ontario Government vaccination program.  Information on bookings can be found at https://www.ontario.ca/page/vaccines  The Ontario Government is only allowing people to sign up who are in their current eligibility groups. 
 
Can I still try to get my vaccine elsewhere, like my doctor’s office or mass vaccination centres?
 
Please feel free to get your vaccine elsewhere if you would like to do so, but if you get it elsewhere please call us to let us know so that we can take you off our list. 
 
I didn’t use my Scheduling link before it expired?
 
Unused links will be resent a new scheduling link at a later time for a future vaccine clinic day.
 
I didn’t receive an onboarding email after I registered to your waitlist?
 
If you submitted your email address to the waitlist system an email will be sent to that email address confirming your registration on our waitlist. You may find it in your junk mail, try looking there.  It can also take an hour or two so give it some time and it should arrive.  If you haven’t received a waiting list onboarding email within 24 hours then give us a call and we will double check your email address was added correctly. 
 
If I don’t want my scheduled appointment, can I give it to a friend or family member?
 
Unfortunately not.  Appointments are only valid for the specific person they were booked for.  Please use the link in the booking system to cancel your appointment. 
 
I don’t have internet
 
If you aren’t able to access the link above due to a lack of internet, then how are you reading this… just kidding.  Please call our pharmacy and a staff member can add you to the waiting list over the phone.  Our lovely staff are very busy with our regular medication dispensing as well as vaccination planning so please only use this option if absolutely necessary. 
 
I don’t have an email address
 
Please add your phone number during registration.  When it’s your turn to schedule an appointment, instead of a link being emailed to you a staff member will call you to book your appointment. 
 
Can I choose the vaccine that I get? 
 
Unfortunately not.  All of the currently approved vaccines are safe and effective.  When given the opportunity to get vaccinated take the first vaccine that’s offered to you, don’t wait.  During a pandemic, when community spread is high, the best strategy is for everyone to be vaccinated as soon as they are able.  All of the approved vaccines are very effective at preventing severe covid symptoms, hospitalizations and death.  We also don’t have any say over which vaccine the government sends us to provide to our patients.
