Yesterday, Wednesday, June 3, 2021, the provincial government announced schools will not be returning to in-person learning before September. As a result of that announcement, Kingston Community Health Centres (KCHC) has intensified their efforts to help eligible students get vaccinated.
KCHC is pushing ahead with this agenda in hopes that many students will have their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine before returning to school for the 2021-2022 academic year.
“We can help with vaccine booking for eligible members of the community we serve, and especially youth, to ensure a safe return to school in the fall,” their latest poster reads. “Call or or come by our registration event if you live in the Rideau Heights area, are a client of KCHC and/or are a student 12-17 at any of these schools:
- Kingston Secondary School
- Regiopolis Notre Dame
- Rideau Heights Public School
- J.G. Simcoe Public School
- Molly Brant Elementary School
- St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School”
The upcoming registration event takes place Monday, June 7, 2021, from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at 263 Weller Avenue, rain or shine. Be sure to bring your health card.
KCHC also has a dedicated phone line for vaccine information and booking 613-542-2949 x1183.
