Niagara, Ontario – Residents who need a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine are invited to pop in to an upcoming Niagara Region Public Health clinic at the Crystal Ridge Community Centre in Fort Erie.
As mass immunization efforts continue, pop-up clinics like this will hopefully give even more opportunity for people in Niagara to get vaccinated. This pop-up clinic will be available for walk-ins only, and both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be offered.
*WHEN:*Saturday, August 14 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
*WHERE:***Crystal Ridge Community Centre, 99 Ridge Rd S, Fort Erie, ON L0S 1B0
*WHO:*Anyone 12 years and older
Niagara Region Public Health would like to thank Wayne Gates, MPP and the Town of Fort Erie for their partnership in organizing this clinic and helping in our efforts. We continue to partner with organizations across the Niagara community as we work to vaccinate as many people in the region as possible.
“We fought hard to ensure that Niagara got its fair share of vaccines, now we have to make sure we use them,” said Wayne Gates, MPP for Niagara Falls, Fort Erie & Niagara-on-the-Lake.
“I am happy to partner with the Town of Fort Erie and Public Health to make these shots even more available. Just stop by, no appointment needed, first or second shots for those 12 and above. It’s that simple and it will help us save lives in our community. We’re in the final stretch. If you haven’t rebooked your second shot or received your first, now is the time – we’ll see you there.”
“Pop-up clinics are designed to reduce vaccination barriers for people by eliminating the need to book an appointment or trek across the region to a mass vaccination site,” said Wayne Redekop, Mayor of the Town of Fort Erie.
“This new clinic will help us reach more people in Fort Erie by helping them get immunized in a way that works for them. I’m happy to say that we’re making great progress through these additional efforts but we need to keep going.”
Those coming to visit us at the pop-up clinic are reminded to:
* Wear a mask
* Screen yourself for symptoms of COVID-19. If you’re feeling unwell, come visit us another day.
* Take any regular medication
* Make sure to eat before coming to the vaccination clinic to prevent feeling faint or dizzy while being vaccinated
* Wear a loose-fitting top or a t-shirt
* Dress for the weather, as you may need to wait outside
* To get your mind off the needle, bring an object such as a mobile device, fidget spinner or book. You can also bring a person with you for support, such as a family member.
A full schedule of Niagara Region Public Health clinics are listed on the Region’s website at –<https://www.niagararegion.ca/health/covid-19/vaccination/clinic-schedule.aspx>, and more clinics will continue to be added. Walk-ins are available at any of our clinics from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
