Leeds, Grenville & Lanark – As of today, July 19, we will be offering walk-in appointments, in addition to appointments, at every fixed site and community clinic to increases access to vaccinations. Over the past few weeks, The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit has been piloting opening up some clinics for walk-in appointments and it has been going very well.
Locations and times of all the clinics will be posted on our website, promoted through social media and sent to our partners for assistance in promoting vaccination. Walk-ins will be accepted until the posted walk-in time ends, an hour before the clinic ends, or until the vaccine supply for walk-ins has been given – if this occurs, we will post this information on our social media. Each site may have its own way of dealing with walk-ins with time stamps to come back later or a line up.
Clinics have mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) depending on the availability of the vaccine shipped to us. Pfizer will always be available for youth 12-17. As the supply of Pfizer increases in July, it will be more available at clinics to those over 18. You can also check for a participating pharmacy near you and contact them for an appointment.
The contingency list will be discontinued as of July 19.
If you want to guarantee an appointment, use the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark online booking portal to book an appointment. There are many spots available.
