Niagara Regional Health wants to make getting vaccinated as easy as, well, walking into a room.

In a release, the Health unit said, “To help make it easier to get the vaccine, walk-ins for those getting their first and second doses are now welcome at all Niagara Region Public Health COVID-19 vaccination clinics from 9:30 am to 6 pm.”

Starting next week, Niagara Health added that anyone 12 years of age or older who does not yet have their first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine is encouraged to come to any Public Health clinic across the region whenever and wherever works best for them.

They noted that both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be available at all clinics.

“Most Niagara residents have already made the choice to get fully vaccinated and beat back the tide of this pandemic,” said Dr. Mustafa Hirji, acting medical officer of health, Niagara Region Public Health.

“With the Delta variant ascendant around the globe, we are seeing that those who have not yet been fully vaccinated are overwhelmingly the ones suffering illness and hospitalizations due to the delta variant. With easier and more plentiful access to vaccinations than ever before, let’s all do our part to ‘Stick it to COVID’ for good.”

Niagara Region Public Health clinics are held in various locations throughout the region. Next week, clinics will be held at the following locations:

  • July 25-27 – St. Catharines/Thorold, Brock University
  • July 27 – Wainfleet, Firefighters’ Community Hall
  • July 28 – Port Colborne, Vale Health and Wellness Centre
  • July 28-29 – Niagara Falls, MacBain Community Centre
  • July 29 – Pelham, Meridian Community Centre
  • July 30 – Niagara-on-the-Lake, Community Centre
  • July 30-31 – Lincoln, Lincoln Community Centre
  • July 31 – Fort Erie, Leisureplex

The Health unit did note that walk-in vaccinations depend on vaccine supply and therefore are not guaranteed.

To ensure vaccine will be available, people are still encouraged to book an appointment either online through the provincial portal at Ontario.ca/bookvaccine or by calling the provincial booking system at 1-833-943-3900.
