As of April 1, 2023, all regional health authorities and the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information are transitioning to a single provincial health authority. This website will continue to be updated during this time.
Patients, clients and residents can continue to access care in the same way they always have. There are no immediate changes to health-care programs, services, facilities or contact information as a result of this step in the transition.
In October 2021, a cyber incident impacted critical IT systems supporting health-care providers across Newfoundland & Labrador.
Due to the privacy breach resulting from the cyber incident, credit monitoring and identity theft protection services are available for clients and current and former employees. The registration deadline is September 30, 2023.

Influenza vaccination clinics will begin to roll throughout the region starting Monday, October 17, 2022. This is the first year both influenza and COVID-19 will be circulating broadly within our communities at the same time. That’s because for the last couple of years, cases of the flu were rare due to the widespread use of COVID-19 prevention measures such as masking and social distancing. With the relaxing of restrictions around COVID-19, cases of influenza are expected to rise.
COVID-19 vaccine clinics are open to all eligible residents including children 6 months and older; and are also available from pharmacies and family physicians. Additional appointments are made available as soon as capacity increases. Please be patient and check back frequently.
Learn more about what Eastern Health is doing to respond to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including protocols and guidelines in place at hospitals and health-care facilities throughout the region.
NL Health Services is the provincial health authority, transitioning from five former organizations. Health-care services and contact information for the Eastern Rural/Urban health zones remains available on this website. For corporate information and news, please visit NLHealthServices.ca.
