VACCINATION  CLINICS OVERVIEW ( How to get a vaccine … so far)

Posted: March 22, 2021

 COVID-19-VaccineThe new vaccination booking system will be launched tomorrow ( Tuesday, March 23)  for those individuals aged 75 or older. There is no longer the requirement to pre-register.

 Vaccination clinics are by appointment only, and walk-ins are not permitted. All COVID-19 vaccination appointments at targeted or mass vaccination clinics will be done through a single dedicated online booking system on Tuesday. Locally, we will not be moving to the provincial online booking system at this time.

 As of Tuesday, adults 75 years and older in 2021 will be able to register to book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment at either:

  • The Windsor Family Credit Union (WFCU) Centre clinic in Windsor,
  • The Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre (NFFRC) clinic in Leamington,
  • The St. Clair College SportsPlex in Windsor, or
  • Windsor Hall (former Windsor Star building). 

  For adults 80 years of age and older next week, public health and Windsor Regional Hospital will be vaccinating adults 80 years of age and older. WECHC  wants to assure those who have pre-registered that they will be called to book an appointment.

80 years olds who did not pre-register for the special 80 plus clinics are encouraged to book an appointment through the new booking system

 Effective Monday, March 22, eligibility for the AstraZeneca vaccine will be expanded to include adults 60 years of age and older. It was previously for adults 60 to 64. Those interested in booking an appointment at any of the 57 Windsor and Essex County pharmacies as part of the provincial pilot program should contact a participating pharmacy directly.
