Acknowledgement of Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Health Information

The personal health information on this form is being collected for the purpose of providing care to you and creating an immunization record for you, and because it is necessary for the administration of Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccination program. This information will be used and disclosed for these purposes, as well as other purposes authorized and required by law. For example,

- it will be disclosed to the Chief Medical Officer of Health and Ontario public health units where the disclosure is necessary for a purpose of the Health Protection and Promotion Act. And
- it may be disclosed, as part of your provincial electronic health record, to health care providers who are providing care to you.

The information will be stored in a health record system under the custody and control of the Ministry of Health. Where a Clinic Site is administered by a hospital, the hospital will collect, use and disclose your information as an agent of the Ministry of Health.

You may be contacted by a hospital, local public health unit, or the Ministry of Health for purposes related to the COVID-19 vaccine (for example, to remind you of follow up appointments and to provide you with proof of vaccination). If you consent to receiving these follow up communications by email or text/SMS, please indicate this using the boxes below.


Consent to Being Contacted About Research Studies

Many research studies will be conducted in respect of COVID-19 vaccines. You have the option of consenting to be contacted by researchers about participation in COVID-19 vaccine related research studies. If you consent to be contacted, your personal health information will be used to determine which studies may be relevant to you, and your name and contact information will be disclosed to researchers. Consenting to be contacted about research studies does not mean you have consented to participate in the research itself. Participating in research is voluntary. You may refuse to consent to be contacted about research studies without impacting your eligibility to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

If you consent to be contacted about research studies, and then change your mind, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting the Ministry of Health at Vaccine@ontario.ca.
