The health unit and partners are relocating the mass vaccination site currently located at Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre in Leamington with the final doses being administered at this site on Saturday, February 5th. The location reopened its doors on January 5th to enhance access to booster doses in response to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant. To date, the site has provided over 5,000 total doses. Effective Tuesday, February 8th the county-based mass vaccination clinic will be relocated to the Grovedale House Community Hall located at 103 Park Street in Kingsville. The clinic will continue to operate from Tuesday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. with pre-booked or walk-in appointments.
“I want to thank the Municipality of Leamington for opening their doors a second time to set up a mass vaccination clinic at their recreation centre. We look forward to working with the Town of Kingsville to continue providing this service to residents of the county,” said Nicole Dupuis, CEO for the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.
