Hastings and Prince Edward Public Health

Land Acknowledgment

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health is situated and provides services on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Huron-Wendat and Haudenosaunee people. The land that we preside on today lies on unceded Indigenous territory. Our catchment area is adjacent to the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory to our east, and the Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin First Nation to our north. We recognize that when settlers came to this land they created a legacy of inequities that are ongoing. We are committed to reducing these inequities, and through our work strive to improve health equity. We recognize the importance of the land and environment in establishing and sustaining optimal health, and we vow to respect this land as we undertake our work. Our organization pledges to build relationships with Indigenous friends and neighbours and recognizes the rich contributions they have provided and continue to provide to this region. This acknowledgment is a first step in our ongoing commitment to reconciliation.

COVID-19 VACCINES IN HPEPH

Appointments for individuals 5+ can be booked through the provincial vaccine booking site, or by calling 1-833-943-3900 from 8 am to 8 pm, 7 days a week.  

Due to limited supply, HPEPH will initially be prioritizing available bivalent vaccine for residents and workers at identified highest-risk facilities.  Some HPEPH vaccination clinics MAY offer the bivalent vaccine, as availability allows. Vaccine clinics in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties will continue to offer monovalent vaccines (the same mRNA vaccines given as the primary series) for all eligible individuals until a steady supply of the bivalent vaccine is available.

Visit the HPEPH vaccine booking web page for details.
