The following statement can be attributed to Nicole Dupuis, Chief Executive Officer of the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU):

“The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit in collaboration with health system partners is aggressively ramping up community capacity to provide doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in all applicable settings in the City of Windsor and Essex County. Currently the following actions are being implemented to ensure doses are available in a timely manner:

  • Appointment slots at the Devonshire Mall Mass Vaccination site will be increasing as a result of extended hours and additional staffing.
  • A new mass vaccination site in the County, specifically in Leamington is being established and will be operational early in January.
  • A new vaccination site in the west end of Windsor will be operational early in January.
  • Dialogue with primary care partners and pharmacies to enhance access through these channels is ongoing.
  • Additional pop-up clinics in high-priority neighbourhoods are added to our website daily.

The urgency to boost our community’s immunity has never been higher, and the WECHU is working round the clock with our partners taking an all hands on deck approach to increase opportunities to access the vaccine. Please continue to check in at WEVAX.ca for new appointment times, pop-up clinic locations, and participating health care providers over the coming days. Please also note that as a component of the booster strategy those under the age of 30 will receive the Pfizer vaccine with Moderna dedicated for those 30 and older.

We want to assure the community that vaccination appointments and opportunities will continue to be a priority. Please be patient as we work together to increase access across our region for vaccination.”
