Workplaces, community organizations, places of worship and other groups can now request a COVID-19 vaccine clinic through the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit’s (Health Unit) Mobile Clinic Request Form. The form allows eligible groups to submit a request for a mobile vaccination team to come to their site and provide first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The ability to request a mobile clinic is part of the Health Unit’s efforts to reduce barriers in accessing the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Mobile clinics are another way we can reach individuals who wish to be vaccinated but may not have had the chance to get to a clinic.” says Andrea McLellan, Director of COVID-19 Immunization Strategy. “It is important to us that everyone who wants to be vaccinated can be.”
As of 10 a.m. on August 9, 2021, almost 78 per cent of residents in the Health Unit district 12 years of age and older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while 68 per cent are fully vaccinated.
Eligible employers and other groups who may benefit from a mobile vaccination team can complete the form online at myhealthunit.ca, or call the Health Unit COVID-19 Call Centre at 1-844-478-1400.
