Youth aged 12 to 17 are able to get their booster shots now, and the Hastings Prince Edward District Health Unit is urging young people to take advantage of that.
The Health Unit says young people can now get a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine for COVID-19. While a health card is not needed for those under 17 to get their shot, they will need to provide informed consent by filling out a form, and have read and understood information about the vaccine. They also urge families to make informed, evidence-based decisions about vaccination.
To book a booster at North Hastings clinics, call 613-332-2825 ext. 6227. Appointments can also be booked through the provincial booking system.
