-Available April 6 and/or April 27th
-Able to stand/walk for 4-5 hours at a time

Those interested in participating may contact Hilary Fennell, Community Development Coordinator at Loyalist Township, at [email protected], providing full name and contact information of any interested parties. According to Fennell, 22 people will be required for each day.
“We’re really pleased that we will be able to accommodate this service in the community so that Loyalist residents can be immunized in their own backyard,” said Fennell.
