COVID-19 Information

ANYONE AGED 12+ who has not yet received a FIRST DOSE of the COVID-19 vaccine:

Please reach out to the Elliot Lake Family Health Team by calling 705-461-8882 to book at one of our upcoming vaccine clinics.

Vaccine Clinic Update: We expect a shipment delay for Pfizer this week (June 21-25) and will be receiving Moderna. As reported by Public Health – Pfizer and Moderna can be interchangeable and either one can be used as a second dose for people who had AstraZeneca as a first dose.

A drop-in FIRST DOSE vaccination clinic will be at the Collins Hall on
June 29th from 5-7 pm.

The COVID-19 assessment centre is located at the Elliot Lake Family Health Team. Call (705) 461 – 8882 to book an assessment.

The COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic is being held at the W.H. Collins Hall. Staff at the ELFHT are calling eligible persons to book their appointments. If you are eligible, and have not yet been called, feel free to call the clinic at (705) 461 – 8882. Also, if you previously declined an appointment, but now wish to book one, please call the clinic. Please be patient with staff, as we are currently experiencing a high volume of calls.
