Select pharmacies in the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health (WDGPH) region have begun booking vaccination appointments for residents.

Pharmacies across the province began booking appointments for vaccinations on April 1, to administer the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Eligibility for the vaccine has been restricted to those aged 55 or older in 2021, and requires those booking to have a valid Ontario health (OHIP) card or another valid government-issued identification.

Bookings for vaccinations can be made online through the pharmacies website.

The following pharmacies are part of the program in Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health: 


  • Drugstore Pharmacy at 101 Second Line


  • Jeffers Pharmacy Limited at 1 Elizabeth St.
  • Shoppers Drug Mart at 25 Broadway Ave.


  • Costco Pharmacy at 19 Elmira Rd. S.
  • Drugstore Pharmacy at 1045 Paisley Rd.
  • Drugstore Pharmacy at 160 Kortright Rd. W.

WDG Public Health launched the COVID-19 Hub Vaccination Clinic at Alder Recreation Centre in Orangeville, for Dufferin County residents at the beginning of March. In Shelburne the Mel Lloyd Centre is currently operating as a pop-up clinic.
