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."
 The mRNA clinics are administering the Moderna vaccine for those 18 years of age and older. Individuals 12-17 years of age will receive the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, as this is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine authorized by Health Canada for this age group.
Please be mindful for those needing a second dose, 28 days between doses is required.  Bring photo ID and your health card.
