Eastern, Central and Western Health are now inviting all pregnant women and people who are 60 years of age and older (by December 31, 2021) to book an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination. Labrador-Grenfell Health has also opened vaccination appointments for pregnant women.
To book an appointment at one of the available clinics throughout the Eastern Health region on the online booking portal called Pomelo (formerly called Health Myself):
- please click the following link or copy and paste the link into the address bar of an internet browser (Google Chrome is the preferred browser).
- complete the eligibility questionnaire and consent.
- select your preferred location and follow directions.

The Pomelo online booking system is managed by the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information. It is important to use a personal email address if possible as many companies have spam filters that can prevent confirmation emails. Always check spam/junk folders for email confirmations. It is also a good idea to write down appointment dates and times as a precaution after completing bookings. Individuals experiencing difficultly booking their appointment are advised to click here for the how-to video, or contact 1-833-951-3884 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Clinic locations throughout the region can be found on Eastern Health’s website at www.easternhealth.ca/covid19vaccine. Individuals will know the clinics are full when there are no longer any available appointment slots available in the online system. If an appointment is no longer available in the community/clinic of choice, more clinics will be available in the future. People should continue to check the website as we are continuing to add clinics weekly.
In keeping with public health guidance to reduce the number of contacts wherever possible, patients are asked to carefully consider the necessity of an attendee when visiting these areas. Although support persons are encouraged to attend when needed, patients who can safely manage their interaction for out-patient care without assistance/support should attend the vaccine clinic unaccompanied. For more information, please visit the “Visitation and Support Persons” webpage via www.easternhealth.ca/covid19.
The public is reminded that they should not schedule an appointment for a vaccine if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Instead, complete a COVID-19 Assessment and referral by clicking here.
