Health Unit: COVID-19 Vaccine Program transition planned for end of August

Brockville – As of August 31st, 2021, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit and partners will be transitioning to a mobile vaccine clinic program. The current Fixed Site Vaccine Clinics in Almonte, Smiths Falls, Kemptville and Brockville will become part of the mobile program rather than operating on a regular weekly schedule, and some will move to other locations. These clinics have been supported by a number of partners and have provided thousands of vaccinations to residents of LGL as well as other surrounding areas. The vaccine dashboard reports the vaccination rate in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark this week as 87% of those 12+ have first doses and 67% have second doses. We could not have achieved this rate without the work of our staff, partners and volunteers who have worked since the beginning of this year to facilitate the planning and operation of these clinics.

Rebook appointments scheduled for September and October

Our staff will be reaching out to those with vaccine appointments booked in September and October to reschedule the appointment.  Appointments can be rebooked through the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark online booking portal or by contacting the local Call Centre toll-free at 1-844-369-1234 (open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:00pm). You can also use the walk-in program at all clinics between now and August 31stLocations and dates can be found on our website. You can notify us to cancel an appointment by submitting an online cancellation request or calling the Call Centre.
