Windsor Regional Hospital is anticipating increased interest in both vaccinations and testing following this week’s provincial government announcement about plans for vaccine passports.

They have released the following reminders for the public on where and when to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, and where and when to get a COVID-19 test:

COVID-19 Vaccinations:

For those seeking vaccinations for either a first dose or second dose (if 28 days from the first dose) can walk in to the Devonshire Mall Vaccination Centre, or book an appointment online
between 8 am and 3:15 pm, seven days a week. Walk-ins are available and same day and next day appointments are most often available to be scheduled; you can book in advance online to
ensure a specific time through wevax.ca.

COVID-19 Testing For SYMPTOMATIC individuals:

Based on the Ontario Government’s current COVID-19 testing guidelines, they are assessing individuals for COVID-19 testing based on the following:

  •  Individuals with symptoms of COVID-19
  • Their public health unit or the COVID Alert app notifies them that they have been exposed to a confirmed case of the virus
  • They live or work in a setting that has a COVID-19 outbreak, as identified by the local public health unit
  • They are eligible for testing as part of a targeted testing initiative as determined by the Ministry of Health in partnership with other ministries. (Targeted testing populations may change from time to time and individuals should confirm eligibility with their health care provider before seeking testing.)

WRH has a recently opened COVID-19 Assessment Centre for youth, and a long-standing COVID-19 Assessment Centre for all symptomatic individuals. Details are as follows:

COVID-19 Testing – Youth 17 and Under – WRH Met Campus:

The Paediatric Urgent Medical Assessment (PUMA) Clinic is seven days a week from noon until 8 pm., offering COVID-19 testing, urgent care medical assessment based on potential COVID-19 symptoms and, where appropriate, COVID-19 vaccinations using the approved Pfizer vaccine for those born in 2009 or later. The clinic is available by appointment only at wrh.on.ca/OnlineBooking.

COVID-19 Testing – Ages 18 and Up – WRH Ouellette Campus:

Testing for symptomatic adults ages 18 and up at the Ouellette Campus COVID-19 Assessment Centre – open from 8 am to 3 pm, seven days a week – remains by appointment only. In order
to schedule a COVID-19 assessment appointment, you can go online to https://www.wrh.on.ca/OnlineBooking on your mobile device or computer and select a certain date/time for your appointment or by “first available time.”  Have your health card in hand when booking on-line or calling in to 519-973-4443. Same day and next day appointments are generally available and  necessary to accommodate higher demand to ensure same and next day testing remains available.
