More people will be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine in Huron Perth as of Monday.
Huron Perth Public Health says residents between the ages of 75 and 79 will be able to start booking their vaccines that day.
It comes ahead of schedule and after the province announced a similar move on Friday with the number of people who have already received a first dose of the vaccine growing.
Those in that age group in the Middlesex-London Health Unit and Southwestern Public Health regions will also be able to start making appointments.
Dr. Miriam Klassen, Medical Officer of Health at Huron Perth Public Health is pleased about the expansion. “We are very happy that we are now opening up our clinics further to include those 75 and older. We know the importance of older adults getting the vaccine and look forward to seeing them in our clinics.”
