Residents invited to walk-in vaccine clinics at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre

Hastings and Prince Edward Counties/July 13, 2021

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health is expanding the options for residents who are eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine by offering walk-in appointments today through Saturday, July 17 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre.

Walk-in appointments are available to individuals aged 12 and older in need of either their first or second dose of vaccine. Individuals can only receive their second dose 28 days after their first dose.

Youth 12-17 will receive the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, as this is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine that has been authorized by Health Canada for use in individuals aged 12 to 17. Individuals 18 and older will be offered an mRNA vaccine ((either Pfizer or Moderna) depending on supplies.

Individuals attending the walk-in clinics should come prepared to potentially wait outside by bringing water, a sun umbrella, wearing sunscreen and hat.

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.
