November 22, 2021 – Guelph FHT Media Release
“To make it as easy as possible for parents, guardians and their children to receive the COVID vaccine, Family Doctors in Guelph are working together as a group to offer 5-11-year-olds a COVID vaccination at the Stone Road Mall”, said Ross Kirkconnell, Executive Director of the Guelph Family Health Team.
“With the expectation of vaccinating the roughly 10,500 Guelph children in this age group, having one site with easy access is the goal. The site in the mall (near the escalator and elevator to lower level) is a great collaboration between the Guelph Family Health Team and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health. We have collaborated to pull this together quickly to make this important public health measure as successful as possible”, Kirkconnell added.
Guelph Family Health Team Family Doctors, Nurses Practitioners and Nurses will be on site Monday to Thursday 1:00pm to 8:00pm starting November 25, 2021 and continuing until December 16, 2021.
The COVID Vaccination Clinic at the Stone Road Mall is available to all children 5-11 years.
