Pop-up clinics continue at Niagara schools this week
As part of Niagara Region Public Health’s efforts to get as many eligible students as possible vaccinated against COVID-19, school pop-up clinics continue this week in Niagara.
The clinics will run from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., and both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be available. Although students will receive priority for vaccination, the pop-ups will be open to walk-ins from everyone who is eligible (12 + and those who are turning 12 this year - born on or before Dec. 31, 2009) and looking to get their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Residents with third dose referral letters are also welcome (for more information on who is eligible and how to get a third dose, visit our website).
Public Health will be hosting school clinics at:
- Today (Sept. 1) – Saint Paul Catholic High School (Niagara Falls)
- Sept. 2 – Denis Morris Catholic High School (St. Catharines)
- Sept. 3 – Notre Dame College School (Welland)
Getting students back to school with as few disruptions as possible is of the utmost importance. The best way to protect students is (1) to get them vaccinated where possible, and (2) to ensure everyone in Niagara who is eligible receives two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, since cases in schools tend to reflect cases in the community.
