The COVID-19 vaccination clinics that were expected to fire up in North Durham next week have been delayed due to lack of supply.
According to a media release issued by the Durham Region Health Department Friday (March 12), the clinics in Brock, Scugog and Uxbridge — as well as one in Ajax — have been delayed indefinitely.
“The Health Department has been told by the province that vaccine supply is expected to increase the week of March 22, which will help to support the opening of the remaining sites,” reads a media release.
“However, the opening of these sites is dependent upon vaccine delivery dates which have not yet been confirmed by the Province.”
With the opening of a clinic in Whitby Monday (March 15), there will be four locations in Durham for residents aged 80 and older to get a vaccine:
- Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex, 2440 Durham Regional Hwy. 2, Bowmanville;
- Chestnut Hill Developments Recreation Complex,1867 Valley Farm Road, Pickering;
- Durham College/Ontario Tech University Campus Ice Centre, 2000 Simcoe Street North, Oshawa; and,
- McKinney Centre, 222 McKinney Drive, Whitby
All clinics run from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
