Vaccination Policy Update
Submitted By Katie Haasen on Sat 09 11, 21
As a reminder to last week’s announcement, OMHA has mandated that all eligible participants involved in minor hockey are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for the upcoming season.  All eligible participants are required to be fully vaccinated by October 31, 2021.  According to the policy, a participant is fully vaccinated two weeks after their second vaccination. 

All questions about the policy should be addressed to OMHA at this time.  For specific details on the policy, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

DMHA will now require proof of COVID-19 immunization for all coaches, volunteers, bench staff, and participants who are eligible for vaccination (including those born in or before 2009), unless exempted. It is a possibility that in the near future the municipality may require proof of vaccination to enter the arena. We will post details when they become known.

We are requesting that all 2009 or earlier birthdates have at least one vaccine by their first tryout. Please note the timelines for the vaccines. There needs to be 3 weeks between the two shots and someone isn’t considered fully vaccinated until two weeks after the last shot.

If you still require vaccination, appointments are not required at MLHU’s vaccination clinics. Here is a link where you can find a list of pop-up vaccination clinics: https://www.healthunit.com/pop-up-vaccination-clinics

DMHA is currently working with a web provider to create a safe and secure method for uploading proof of vaccination. Once those details become finalized, you will receive an email outlining the process.

Proof of vaccination must be uploaded by October 17th for 2009 and older players, bench staff and volunteers.

Please be aware of our refund policy:

1. There will be a full refund up until Sept 22nd at midnight for any refund requests related to the new proof of vaccination policy.

 

2. Refund requests related to the vaccination policy that are submitted on Sept 23rd or later will follow the regular DMHA refund policy. That refund policy can be found here: https://dorchesterdragons.ca/Pages/8383/2021-2022_Refund_Policy/

 

Again, if you have any issues or concerns with the vaccination policy, they should be directed to OMHA at this time.
