Pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics July 13/18 

July 6, 2022

Pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics will take place on Wednesday, July 13 and Monday, July 18.

Wednesday, July 13

  • Rossmore Plaza (5503 Highway 62) — 12:30-3 pm

Monday, July 18

  • Picton Skate Park (375 Picton Main Street, Picton) — 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
  • Roblin Lake Park (38 Coleman Street, Ameliasburgh) — 2-4 pm

People aged 12 and over who are eligible for their first, second, third, or fourth dose of the vaccine can get the COVID-19 vaccine at these pop-up clinics. Visit the Government of Ontario website for more details about eligibility.

You can receive a second booster (fourth dose) at a recommended interval of five months (140 days) after your first booster or at a minimum of three months (84 days) after your first booster if you are:

  • 60 years old or older
  • A First Nation, Inuit and Métis individual aged 18 and over or a non-Indigenous household member aged 18 and over
  • Immunocompromised with supporting medical documentation

If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, it is recommended that you wait 90 days after the infection to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. You should speak to a health-care provider about the optimal timing for your next dose. If you do not have access to a provider, the health-care professionals at the pop-up clinics will be available to discuss with you.

Eligible individuals can also receive their vaccination at participating local pharmacies, by contacting the pharmacy directly. Please visit covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations for location and registration information.

Research from around the world has shown the importance of getting three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Three doses are better than two doses at:

  • Protecting you from getting COVID
  • Stopping you from spreading COVID
  • Protecting you from getting so sick from COVID that you have to go to hospital
  • Decrease your risk of dying from COVID. To date, 63 people in the Quinte region have died from COVID, and many continue to live with the ongoing effects of COVID infection.

Two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine do not work as well as three doses against Omicron, the dominant COVID variant, and its sub-variants. Protection from two doses starts to decrease around three months.
