COVID-19 vaccine for hospital staff, physicians and learners

Updated March 17th 2021

Hospital staff, physicians and learners: Sign up to receive your COVID-19 vaccine

What you need to do
  • We are asking every hospital healthcare worker to sign up for the vaccine.
  • Click the orange button above to sign up online.
  • Hospital healthcare workers not yet scheduled to be vaccinated are now asked to re-enter your information including your health card number. If this step is completed, healthcare workers will be emailed a link and instructions in the coming weeks, to book a vaccine appointment into the new provincial booking tool.
  • A text message will be sent by the SJHH/HHS online registration system/vaccination clinic, confirming this process and reminding HCW still waiting for their first dose, to register again.
  • Once you have added your HCN, you will have to remain vigilant and look for an email/message from the provincial system in the coming weeks.
  • It is critical to this process that valid email addresses are entered as this is how you will receive information about self-scheduling through the provincial system.
  • Once you receive that message, you will be able to log in and book your own appointment.
  • You will be asked about which of the three priority groups you fit into. Find out more here.
  • The three priority groups will be done in order. As more vaccines are made available, more people will be vaccinated, pending on supply of vaccine.
  • Healthcare workers from each priority group will be placed into a randomized selection process to determine who will get the vaccine each day. 
  • You will be contacted for scheduling when your name is selected.
It’s important to note that everyone who wants to get the vaccine will get it.
What you need to know
  • If you are selected and do not accept the appointment, or miss the appointment, you will be put back into the randomized process.
  • Some people will get appointments during their shifts, some will get them on their days off. 
  • We encourage everyone to take the appointment you are given to get the vaccine as quickly as possible. 
  • Units will support the timing of these appointments as much as possible. If you are scheduled to work on the date/time of your vaccine appointment, please let your manager know as soon as possible.
We recognize this may not be a perfect system, but it is the best way to ensure healthcare workers caring for the most vulnerable patients, are vaccinated against COVID-19 as quickly as possible.

Residual doses and “standby” list

Additionally, there will continue to be residual doses of the vaccine at the end of each day, and we will be calling some people on the standby list at the last minute to ensure there is no waste of the vaccine, so that we can vaccinate our hospital workers as quickly as possible.

Additional information

Vaccination is highly recommended for all staff, physicians, residents and learners for whom the vaccine is deemed safe. However, receiving the vaccine is voluntary.

If you have any questions about receiving the vaccine, please connect with your healthcare provider in advance. If you have additional questions, the clinicians at the vaccination clinic will be available.

Please remember to bring your health card to your vaccination appointment.
