The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit, in partnership with the Municipality of Leamington and the County of Essex, will be re-opening a mass vaccination clinic at the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre starting on Wednesday, January 5, 2022.

The clinic will have appointments available from 9am to 3:45pm Tuesday through Saturday and will be providing first, second and third doses. Appointments will be required and drop-ins are not permitted at this time. Booking of appointments will start on Wednesday, December 29th at 8am. For booking information and additional information on eligibility, visit www.WEVax.ca or call 226-773-2200.

“I am extremely proud of our Leamington residents that have stepped up to become fully vaccinated over the last year. However, our work isn’t done,” said Mayor Hilda MacDonald. “We need everyone who is eligible to get their booster shot as soon as possible, and the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre is a great convenient place to do just that. Please go online and book appointments for you and your family as soon as you can.”

As part of the efforts to provide more vaccination clinics in the County of Essex, the WECHU, in partnership with the Community Response and Stabilization Team (a partnership between Erie Shores HealthCare and Essex-Windsor EMS), and the Town of Kingsville, is also working with employers of Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs) in the agricultural sector to provide an upcoming series of COVID-19 vaccine clinics. These clinics are specifically designed to provide vaccination to TFWs working and living in Windsor and Essex County. Direct communication has already occurred with the employers. For more information on this initiative, please call 519-258-2146 and dial 6.

“The ultimate goal is to get as many people living in our community vaccinated to help reduce the impact of the virus,” said Kingsville Mayor Nelson Santos. “A clinic dedicated to Temporary Foreign Workers is an ideal way to ensure there is enough capacity for our entire community, including those most vulnerable.”
