Vaccination Clinics

We have transitioned our community Covid-19 vaccine clinics into our offices and service sites (Brockville, Smiths Falls, Kemptville, Almonte, Gananoque). Most are during weekdays but there are a few Saturday clinics.

A list of upcoming clinics is available on our website along with the link for booking.  This is a new link than in previous reports.

We encourage you to continue to check with a participating pharmacy or your health care provider.

Vaccine appointments for six months to five years of age MUST be made by calling the Vaccine Call Centre at 1-844-369-1234 Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:00pm (NOT through the online booking system or the Provincial system).

Flu Vaccination

The flu shot prevents 40% of hospitalizations due to influenza in people 65+. If you know someone who has yet to get immunized, offer to support them in booking an appointment by helping them go online or providing them with the phone numbers so they can call and book their appointment, give them a ride, act as translator, provide them with credible information or let them know they can call us to speak with a public health nurse: Influenza – Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit

Anyone over 2 years of age can get a flu shot at a participating pharmacy
