Brockville COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic changing location August 27
August 20, 2021
The Brockville COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic will be moving. Starting August 27, the clinic originally located at the Brockville Memorial Centre will be relocating to the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit building at 458 Laurier Boulevard. Anyone who has an appointment scheduled on August 27 or after at the Memorial Centre will still keep their date and time but the location will be at the Health Unit. To reach residents where they are, vaccine clinics are now being held in several communities, at community events and in workplaces.
“Thanks to our partners for working with us to provide this fixed site clinic; we have achieved the highest vaccination rate in Ontario and intend to keep providing vaccinations in communities throughout Leeds, Grenville and Lanark,” said Dr. Paula Stewart, Medical Officer of Health. “Getting vaccinated is the best way for residents to be protected from COVID-19 and its variants; it also means people around you are more protected.”
“Congratulations and thank you to the whole vaccination team for a well-organized centre and for your dedication to keeping our community safe,” says Brockville Mayor Jason Baker. “Moving towards this strategy ensures area residents may continue to get vaccinated, while also allowing citizens to resume important recreational activities. City staff will be preparing the Memorial Centre arena over the coming weeks to be ready for use by September 7”.
