Public Service Announcement: COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics with Available Appointments Held Nov. 30 to Dec. 5

Posted on Tuesday November 30, 2021

NIPISSING & PARRY SOUND, ON – The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit (Health Unit) will be holding COVID-19 vaccine clinics this week throughout the Health Unit district, including clinics for children five to 11 years of age.

Only individuals five to 11 years of age will be able to secure an appointment at a Child and Youth Clinic; however, older siblings or parents will be able to receive an adult dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at these clinics if they are accompanying a child to their appointment. The pediatric COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in five to 11-year-olds is not yet available at regular clinics. However, it is available at participating pharmacies throughout the district. Parents and guardians are encouraged to book an appointment at one of the participating pharmacies if they would like their child immunized this week and cannot secure an appointment at a Health Unit clinic.

Individuals are encouraged to bring a health card or another form of identification, if possible, as well as any required documentation for those with underlying health conditions eligible for a third dose. Eligible individuals who received their last dose before June 14, 2021, will be able to book and receive their booster dose this week. Flu shots will also be available for those with COVID-19 appointments at the adult clinics this week.
