Delayed Vaccine Shipment Leads to Clinic Postponements

Point Edward, ON – Due to a delay in the delivery of 4,000 doses of Moderna vaccine, Lambton Public Health (LPH) is regrettably postponing two immunizations clinics this week.

“We were expecting to receive a substantial allocation of Moderna vaccine early this week, but the delivery has been delayed,” said Kevin Churchill, Manager of Family Health. “Our weekly Pfizer allocation (3,510 doses) was delivered, so we are able to continue running our Point Edward clinic this week.

Clinics which were originally scheduled in Brooke-Alvinston and Forest on Wednesday,
April 14 are now rescheduled.

“All individuals who had an appointment in Forest on April 14 have been re-scheduled to Friday, April 16. The rural pop-up community clinic in Brooke-Alvinston (which was also originally scheduled for April 14) is now being held on Friday, April 23. If you had an appointment for either clinic, please plan to arrive at the same time as your appointment was originally booked for (on the rescheduled date),” said Kevin.

If you can no longer attend due to the change in schedule, please call Lambton Public Health to
re-book your vaccination appointment at 519-383-8331, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can also contact LPH via the web form on its website.

If you have vaccination appointments scheduled in Point Edward this week, please attend. That clinic is still running as scheduled.

Pt. Edward Clinic Schedule – Week of April 12:

  • Monday, April 12 – 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 13 – 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 14 – 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

“We’re very sorry for any inconvenience this has caused,” said Kevin. “If you can’t make it to the clinic on the new date, please let us know and we will do our best to reschedule you as soon as possible.”
