A walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic will take place on Thursday, October 20 from 3-7 pm at the Prince Edward Community Centre (375 Picton Main Street, Picton).
The clinic will offer both the new Pfizer bivalent vaccine and the Moderna bivalent vaccine. Doses will also be available for children under the age of 12.
To help seniors avoid standing in long line-ups during the walk-in clinic, tickets are being issued for specific one-hour time blocks. Tickets can be picked up at the Community Care for Seniors office (74A King Street, Picton) on October 18 and October 19 from 9 am to 4:30 pm. You can also pick up a ticket on October 18 at the vaccine clinic in Picton (Prince Edward Community Centre, 375 Picton Main Street). You can still visit the walk-in clinic if you do not acquire a ticket in advance.
