Written by Comms Team, April 7, 2021

Clinics Taking Place in Apsley, Buckhorn and Millbrook

Peterborough Public Health is holding three COVID-19 vaccination clinics for eligible residents in Peterborough County this month with locations confirmed for Apsley, Buckhorn, and Millbrook. Provincial eligibility now includes adults who are born in 1961 or before (60 years or older) as of today.

“Eligible residents can choose to book an appointment at any local clinic, and we are pleased to open up additional clinic locations in the county to make it easier for those living in rural townships to get vaccinated,” said Donna Churipuy, Operations Lead for Peterborough Public Health. “We are currently vaccinating eligible groups as defined in Phase Two the Ontario COVID-19 Vaccination Plan that will ensure everyone the province is offered a vaccination by the end of June.”

Ms. Churipuy noted the number of available appointments are based on vaccine supplies allocated by the provincial government. As more vaccine supply is confirmed, more appointments will open up, so please check back regularly if clinics are full. To book an appointment online 24/7, please visit www.ontario.ca/bookvaccine, or to book over the phone Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., please call 249-494-5631.

Apsley – April 11-13 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Residents are reminded to be patient as Peterborough Public Health opens appointment booking for populations in Phase 2. Once a group becomes eligible to receive the vaccine, they remain eligible. To be notified when a new group becomes eligible for booking, residents are encouraged to visit www.peterboroughpublichealth.ca/notifyme to sign up with their email address and indicate which group(s) they want to be notified about. When booking for these groups opens, Peterborough Public Health will send an email to those on the mailing list explaining how to book a vaccination appointment.
