- Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit aims to complete outstanding second doses by end of July
To date, the Health Unit and its partners across Haldimand and Norfolk have administered 103,735 doses. 73.1% of adults 18 years of age and older have received at least one dose of their COVID-19 vaccine.
The Health Unit is actively aiming to complete all second doses as quickly as possible. Individuals who have appointments for second doses in August, September, or October are asked to go online to book their second dose at an earlier date. As of Monday, July 5, all individuals in Ontario are eligible for their second dose at a 28-day interval from their first dose.
“We are extremely happy with the pace of the vaccination rollout locally and are looking forward to a safe return to school and other activities in the fall. Second dose coverage will be an incredibly important part of that next step. If you have had a first dose more than 28 days ago, please book your second dose as soon as possible,” said Sarah Page, Norfolk County Paramedic Chief and COVID-19 Vaccine Team Lead for Haldimand and Norfolk.
The HNHU has posted clinics for these second doses and any additional first doses at www.hnhu.org/popup in Cayuga and in Delhi. Clinics have been added on July 13, 14, 22, and 24. There are also appointments available on the Provincial Booking Tool this week and throughout the month of July.
