Evinrude Centre COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Now Accepting First and Second Dose Walk-ins

Written by Comms Team, July 19, 2021

All residents over the age of 12 are eligible to receive a second dose at least 28 days after their first dose.

All COVID-19 vaccine clinics at the Evinrude Centre in Peterborough are now accepting first and second dose walk-ins. All residents who have received their COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days prior are eligible to attend a vaccine clinic now for their second dose.

“As Peterborough moves into the stage 3 of re-opening, it is more important than ever for residents to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19,” said Donna Churipuy, Chief Officer of COVID-19 Operations. “If you plan to gather with people from outside your household, you are putting them and yourself at risk of transmitting COVID-19. For a safe and fun summer, get your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.”

As Peterborough Public Health plans to slowly transition away from mass immunization clinics, other methods of vaccine delivery will be available later in the summer to reach residents who have not been able to attend our larger clinics. Donna Churipuy added, “Residents who have second dose appointments booked for August and into the fall are strongly encouraged to move up their second dose by either changing their appointment in the booking system or attending a walk-in clinic that is available now.”

To attend a walk-in clinic, residents are encouraged to bring their Ontario health card and proof of residence in Peterborough City, County, Curve Lake First Nation, or Hiawatha First Nation. The upcoming COVID-19 vaccine walk-in clinics at the Evinrude Centre are,
