The COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics taking place at Memorial Gardens from April 3 to April 5 are now full.
The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit (Health Unit) is working to fill the limited appointments available for other clinics that are currently scheduled throughout the Nipissing and Parry Sound Districts.
At this time, the Health Unit is not placing names on a waiting list for clinics that are not yet scheduled.
Dr. Jim Chirico says the Health Unit, along with other municipalities across the norther, has been advocating for increased access to vaccine.
Individuals born in 1951 or before can now book an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine online by using the provincial booking system at www.Ontario.ca/BookVaccine. Appointments for these individuals can also be made by phone this weekend and Easter Monday by calling the Health Unit at 1-800-563-2808, and choosing option 4.
