Several local organizations have come together to create a new vaccination awareness campaign aimed at putting all the local vaccination information under one roof.

WEVax.ca is a collaboration between the City of Windsor, the County of Essex, Windsor Regional Hospital, Erie Shores HealthCare, and the Windsor Essex County Health Unit to provide local residents with the latest information on available opportunities, eligible ages and how to register for your COVID-19 vaccination.

“WEVax.ca will provide a one-window approach for local residents to get all their up-to-date information about our region’s vaccination plans and procedures”, says Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Online bookings will help speed up the process and make it easier for residents to pick the time that works best for them to get vaccinated. Those who have additional questions about the vaccine, health and safety can also rely on this portal to provide clear, objective information to help everyone make an informed decision.”

Health Unit CEO Theresa Marentette says it’s important for local organizations to work together to effectively communicate the various vaccination plans.

“Our health unit continues to work with the City of Windsor and the County of Essex to ensure a successful rollout of COVID vaccines in Windsor and Essex County,” says Marentette. “WEVax highlights this collaborative effort and aims to increase awareness of the vaccines and their effectiveness in preventing severe COVID infection and death.”

Officials say residents will soon start to see WEVax.ca on social media. WEVax.ca brings people directly to the health unit’s vaccination web page where they can quickly determine if they are eligible for a vaccination, find out how they can register and find answers to several commonly asked questions.
