Point Edward, ON – Lambton Public Health (LPH) is opening COVID-19 vaccine pre-registration for individuals who are 90 years of age and older today. Immunization clinics for this group will begin on Saturday, March 6 and continue through the week of March 8 by appointment only.
To pre-register for your vaccination please go to GetTheVaccine.ca/register. Lambton Public Health also has a Call Centre on standby to assist with registrations. The Call Centre is open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm at 519-383-8331. All eligible Lambton residents who pre-register will be called to confirm an appointment at one of two fixed site clinics in Point Edward or Forest.
NOTE: We expect a high volume of calls. The most efficient way for those who are eligible to sign up is by pre-registering via our online system.
“We are excited to begin administering vaccinations to this group,” said Dr. Sudit Ranade, Medical Officer of Health for Lambton County. “Together with our partners, Lambton Public Health’s number one priority is to vaccinate as many people as possible, as quickly as we can. Vaccine supply is changing and we are confident deliveries will be larger and more consistent in the coming weeks. This will allow us to execute our plans for a large immunization clinic, and more availability for temporary occasional clinics throughout Lambton County.”
Caregivers who reside in the same household as an individual age 90 or older may also pre-register for the vaccine starting today. Each individual can identify up to one in-home caregiver.
A valid government issued ID showing your name, date of birth and address is required for all participants including caregivers who must provide proof they reside in the same household. LPH encourages individuals age 90 and older and their caregivers to complete the pre-registration form together.
Individuals who are 80 years of age and older may begin pre-registering for their vaccinations using the new online Provincial system the week of March 15. More information will be provided when available.
“Every public health region is at different stages in the rollout of the vaccine to prioritized groups identified under the Provincial guidance and phases,” said Dr. Ranade. “While you wait to be vaccinated, please be kind and patient with one another as the rollout for our region moves forward based on vaccine supply. LPH and our partners are working tirelessly for this community, and will continue to do so until as many residents are immunized as possible.”
