60-64 (waitlist only)

  • Residents 60-64 years of age may add their names to a wait-list for potential end-of-day appointments (due to cancellations, no-shows, etc). Lists of individuals aged 65+ will be exhausted first.

55+ (pharmacies only)

  • Residents 55 and above are currently eligible to register for the AstraZeneca vaccine at specific local pharmacies. For more information, please visit https://covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations. Eligible individuals must book through the pharmacies themselves, not the Health Unit.

Outstanding vaccine recipients

  • Residents over the age of 70 and anyone with highest-risk health conditions who have not yet received a vaccine are encouraged to complete the Outstanding Vaccination Recipients registration form. This form will ensure individuals who have called the vaccine hotline and are truly outstanding are being booked in as quickly as possible.

The HNHU Vaccine Hotline is receiving up to 1000 calls per day and staff are responding to calls as quickly as possible. Please do not call the hotline again once you have left a message and await a reply. Your initial call/e-mail WILL be returned.

Official Plan Update – Facilitated Community Workshop #1 – March 25

Official Plan Update – Facilitated Workshop # 1

March 25, 2020
6:00 to 9:00 pm (registration 6:00-6:30 pm)
Cayuga Arena – McSorley Family Hall (2nd Floor)
55 Thorburn Street, Cayuga

A roundtable forum is being held as part of the Official Plan Review. The session will be a facilitated workshop that will focus on:

  • Key trends impacting Haldimand County;
  • Your aspirations for the County; and
  • Two themes: Economy and Growth Management.

This is the first of two workshops in the Official Plan Update review. Facilitated Workshop # 2 will be held in the Fall of 2020 and will focus on the other policy themes, including Environment; Community Building; Leisure, Culture and Heritage; and Health and Social Services.

The Haldimand County Official Plan contains goals, objectives and policies that manage and direct physical change and its effects on the social, economic and natural environment of the County. It guides the installation of public infrastructure and the County’s zoning bylaws that development approvals must conform to.

To help us prepare for the Workshop, please contact Christina Botas – Haldimand County Planning Department at 905-318-5932 ext. 6209 or email: cbotas@haldimandcounty.on.ca to pre-register for the event.

All are welcome! Have your say in shaping Haldimand’s future. Your ideas and insights are important.
