Come the end of August, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit will be transitioning to a mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic program.
In an announcement Tuesday, the health unit said the current fixed site vaccine clinics in Almonte, Smiths Falls, Kemptville and Brockville will become part of the mobile program rather than operating on a regular weekly schedule, with some moving to other locations.
“These clinics have been supported by a number of partners and have provided thousands of vaccinations to residents of LGL as well as other surrounding areas,” the unit said in its statement.
“The vaccine dashboard reports the vaccination rate in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark this week as 87% of those 12+ have first doses and 67% have second doses. We could not have achieved this rate without the work of our staff, partners and volunteers who have worked since the beginning of this year to facilitate the planning and operation of these clinics.”
The LGL will be reaching out to those with vaccine appointments booked in September and October to reschedule their appointments, which can be rebooked through the Leeds, Greville and Lanark online booking portal or by contacting the local call centre.
