Vaccines open to residents 70+

·1 min read

CK Public Health is opening up COVID-19 vaccinations to residents between the ages of 70-74 (born in 1951 or later).

Residents should call the COVID-19 Vaccination Line at 519-351-1010 to book a vaccination appointment at the John D. Bradley Convention Centre.

Due to high call volumes, messages can be left 24 hours a day Monday to Friday.

Residents aged 70 years and over with a last name starting with A to M are asked to call Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Those with a last name starting with N to Z are asked to call on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

CK Public Health said it may take a few days before a call is returned, and residents do not need to call back. Staff will be returning calls daily between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. to schedule appointments for the vaccination clinic.

“This new age bracket includes a larger segment of our population. Please be patient as our staff will need a number of days to return your call,” CK Public Health stated.
