The dates for the last COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Bancroft have been released.
The final four vaccination clinics will be held on August 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st. Each clinic will be held from 10 AM until 3 PM at the Bancroft Legion. The clinic is open to everyone 12 years of age and older requiring their first or second dose. While walk-ins are welcome, people can book an appointment by calling 613-332-1565 ext 220.
The move comes as the Bancroft Family Health Team and Hastings Prince Edward Public Health look to increase the region’s vaccination rate. Currently, 82 percent of residents within the Health Unit have had their first dose, with 69 percent having received their second. Those under 50 lag behind other age groups in their vaccination rates.
