London and Middlesex Primary Care COVID -19 Update
March 4, 2021
Pre-register your employees for the COVID-19 Vaccine

Message from Middlesex-London Health Unit:

The Middlesex-London Health Unit is now offering pre-registration for the COVID-19 vaccine for healthcare workers in the London and Middlesex region.

How to pre-register your employees
 
Healthcare workers must be pre-registered by their employer or associated health care agency:

After you pre-register your employees

  • Employers who have pre-registered will be notified via email when their employees are eligible.
  • Appointment booking information will be provided, including a username and password that can be shared confidentially with staff members who were identified on the pre-registration list.
 
For questions about eligibility please contact covid.vaccination@mlhu.on.ca.
 
For regular updates, please sign up to receive weekly alerts through the Health Unit’s Healthcare Provider Outreach email list by emailing healthcareproviders@mlhu.on.ca.
Need help in identifying patients over 80?
 
Partnering for Quality (PFQ) has built searches and ‘how to’ guides/videos on the swpca.ca website, under the EMR Resources tab:

  • Enter “COVID-19 Patient Vaccination Search and Consent” in the search bar to pull up resources for PSS and Accuro. 
  • EMR compatible versions of the consent form and an interactive PDF version are also included.

In the coming days/weeks, PFQ will add searches for those in other age categories according to the provincial framework.

Please note the MLHU is not requiring you to create lists or submit lists. However some offices desire these lists to help with reaching out to patients to notify them of their eligibility to get COVID vaccinations.
