According to the Elliot Lake Family Health Team (ELFHT), there is no shortage of COVID-19 vaccines in Elliot Lake now.
ELFHT member Dr. Cathy Groh made the announcement early Wednesday morning on social media.
Vaccines are available at several pharmacies and at the Collins Hall. There are over 1,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine available to be given at the Collins Hall this week. The Moderna vaccine is also available.
Anyone who needs a first or second dose can call 705-461-8882 to book an appointment or come to a drop-in clinic on Wednesday from 5-7 p.m. Nurses can also bring vaccines to homebound people.
In countries where most people are vaccinated, COVID-19 is becoming a disease of the unvaccinated. Get your vaccine to protect yourself, your family and your friends.
