At this time, we are prioritizing case management and contact tracing for positive cases of COVID-19 individuals, working with impacted establishments to ensure appropriate protocols are in place, and responding to inquiries from individuals who are directly impacted by positive cases.

While we our do our best to respond to general inquiries within 3 business days, please be aware that this may not always be possible as we respond to critical public health issues.

We encourage you to review our main COVID-19 web page thoroughly before contacting Hastings Prince Edward Public Health.

Appointments for individuals 5+ can be booked through the provincial vaccine booking site, or by calling 1-833-943-3900 from 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week.  

Due to limited supply, HPEPH will initially be prioritizing available bivalent vaccine for residents and workers at identified highest-risk facilities.  Some HPEPH vaccination clinics MAY offer the bivalent vaccine, as availability allows. Vaccine clinics in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties will continue to offer monovalent vaccines (the same mRNA vaccines given as the primary series) for all eligible individuals until a steady supply of the bivalent vaccine is available.

Visit the HPEPH vaccine booking web page for details.
