Huron Perth Public Health is opening up COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

The appointments are for adults aged 80 and older, and Indigenous adults aged 55 and older.

Those who meet the criteria can book an appointment online by clicking here or by calling 1-833-753-2098.

HPPH is asking people to book their appointment online if they are able, or have a caregiver who can help them book online, since phone lines are very busy.

Appointments are for clinics over the next few weeks in several locations across Huron-Perth, including Goderich and Stratford as well as rotating across municipalities in Huron and Perth.

They say as they receive more vaccine supply, additional appointments will be available.
