Hastings Prince Edward Public Health is expanding the options for residents who are eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine by offering walk-in appointments today through Saturday, July 17 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre.
Walk-in appointments are available to individuals aged 12 and older in need of either their first or second dose of vaccine. Individuals can only receive their second dose 28 days after their first dose.

Individuals attending the walk-in clinics should come prepared to potentially wait outside by bringing water, a sun umbrella, wearing sunscreen and hat.
