WDGPH launches tool for checking status of vaccination pre-registrations

WELLINGTON COUNTY – The local health unit has launched a new online tool to allow residents to check the status of their pre-registration for a COVID-19 vaccination.

Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health (WDGPH) officials say the “Check My Pre-registration Status” tool is for people who have not yet received an appointment invitation for their first dose of the vaccine.

The new webpage, launched on May 5 and available at wdgpublichealth.ca/check-registration, allows users to confirm their pre-registration was successful and ensures they can book a vaccination appointment as soon as one is available, officials say.

“Our team has been working throughout the vaccination program to create and improve tools to make it easier to pre-register and book their vaccine appointment,” stated Dr. Kyle Wilson, WDGPH’s director of information systems.

“We know people are eager to get vaccinated, therefore, we are leveraging technology to make this happen in the most efficient way possible.”
