A COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be held at the Prince Edward Community Centre (375 Picton Main Street, Picton) on Tuesday, April 25 from 3 pm to 6:30 pm
This clinic is by appointment only and is available to all people over the age of 6 months. You can book an appointment by going online to book or calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1.833.943.3900.
The Prince Edward Family Health Team is encouraging residents to get a bivalent booster as it increases your protection against severe COVID-19 from Omicron variants 40 per cent more than the previous boosters.
The COVID-19 vaccine clinic on April 25 will be the final one held at the Prince Edward Community Centre. Since the vaccine became widely available in Spring 2021, 178 COVID-19 vaccination clinics have occurred at the Prince Edward Community Centre, allowing thousands of County residents to get their vaccine close to home.
“On behalf of County Council, I would like to thank the Prince Edward Family Health Team, our local health unit, and the many volunteers who gave their time to help out at these clinics,” says Mayor Steve Ferguson. “We are very fortunate to have this health-care service available locally to our residents. Everyone truly came together as a community and are stronger because of it.”
Eligible individuals can receive their vaccination at many participating local pharmacies, by contacting the pharmacy directly. Please visit covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations for location and registration information.
Information about future vaccination clinics in the region is available on the Hastings-Prince Edward Public Health website.
