Online Booking

Online Appointment Booking

Northumberland Family Health Team and our associated medical clinics are introducing Online Appointment Booking! This has been made possible through our partnership with the Ontario Health Team of Northumberland and funding from Ontario Health.

Online appointment booking allows you to easily and conveniently book an appointment with your healthcare provider, receive optional reminders about upcoming appointments, and helps our healthcare providers and administrative staff to better serve you by reducing call volumes and by collecting helpful information prior to your visit.

Online Appointment Booking is being introduced gradually at our clinics and services with the goal of eventually being widely available for most provider and appointment types.

Currently, online appointment booking is available for:

COVID-19 SHOTS – CLICK HERE

If you are booking a Covid Vaccine for a child under 12 years old please book your appointment on any of the available December dates or January 12th or 26th.

FLU SHOTS CLICK HERE

At this time, if you want to book both a flu shot and a covid shot for yourself, they can be given at the same time, you do need to go through the booking link twice. If you can not get the exact same time for both shots, that is okay. We will give you both at the same time.
