Chatham Hope Haven will be hosting a vaccination clinic for those experiencing homelessness.
The clinic will take place on April 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We know that for people without housing, the risk of COVID is very real,” said general manager Loree Bailey in a media release. “The message of ‘stay home and stay safe’ applies to all of us. We know that this is a tool in the prevention of the virus. If you don’t have a home, you don’t have this tool. We want to make sure that those experiencing homelessness have every possible opportunity to protect themselves.”
The clinic is open to all who use the services of the Haven, regardless of age. A health card or other ID is not required. No appointment is required.
People are asked to come to the back door of Hope Haven and access the shelter in the same manner that they always do. Once inside, local doctor Bob Mayo will be available to answer any questions people have.
