Who can walk-in at the clinic in Picton?
Individuals 12 years old and older looking for their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine can walk in to the Picton clinic (375 Picton Main Street) without an appointment.
"It’s quick; it’s easy; it’s safe. Get your shot on the spot without a wait," says Dr. Kim Haigh of the Prince Edward Family Health Team. "If you have any questions about the vaccine or you are hesitant about getting the shot, drop by the clinic and a doctor or nurse will be happy to chat with you about your concerns."
