The end is near…for the COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Bradley Centre. It’s moving to the former YA site on Richmond Street, west of Keil Drive.
The Bradley Centre is to see its last jab issued Feb. 23, while the new site, at 730 Richmond St., is to open March 3.
CK Public Health, the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance and Chatham-Kent EMS have been operating out of the Bradley Centre site for nearly a year.
“Our final day at the Bradley Centre Clinic, Feb. 23, will mark exactly one year in operation there!” Carina Caryn, CK Public Health program manager, said in a media release. “We are very grateful to have had such an ideal location to serve the public out of, and are fortunate to have found a new location just down the road where we can continue to do so.”
First, second and booster doses will be available to residents aged 18 and up. First and second doses will be available to those aged five-plus.
A parent or guardian must be present for children under 12 years of age.
Walk-Ins are welcome at the clinics, but residents are encouraged to book an appointment in advance at www.GetYourShotCK.ca or by calling 519-351-1010.
A number of clinics will be held across Chatham-Kent leading up to the move:
- Feb. 15 at Tilbury District High School from 3-7 p.m.
- Feb. 16 at the Bradley Centre, from 1:30-7:30 p.m.
