Regularly scheduled vaccination clinics are now being offered in 13 communities across the region to those who are eligible. When the next priority group is eligible to book appointments, we will inform the public.
What you can do now
If you are or might be pregnant, have an auto-immune disorder, are immunocompromised, or if you have had a severe allergic reaction to a mRNA vaccine or to any of its components or its container, you will need to talk to your doctor or another health care provider to see if you should get the COVID-19 vaccine. Consider contacting them now to discuss so you will be ready when the vaccine is available to you.
After your shot
It is important to remember that even once immunized, you must continue to practice all COVID-19 prevention measures. The number of shots given will be closely monitored throughout the immunization process to assess when it is safe for prevention measures to be loosened in the region.
