The number of people fully vaccinated in Huron Perth is slowly rising. Huron Perth Public Health (HPPH) reported that as of October 4, almost 78% of residents aged 12 and older have had both doses. Vaccination rates are lowest among 18 to 39 year olds.
“I urge everyone eligible, who is not yet vaccinated, to do so as soon as possible,” says Dr. Klassen. “Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and those around you from COVID-19, especially the Delta variant.”
There are several vaccination options in Huron and Perth open to anyone turning 12 in 2021, and older. Walk-ins are accepted at most clinics. Appointments can be booked for some clinics,
either online at www.hpph.ca/vaccinebooking or by calling 1-833-753-2098. Residents can visit the HPPH website, Facebook or Twitter for the latest information on clinics:
Primary care providers, and many local pharmacies, also offer Pfizer or Moderna vaccinations. The current list of pharmacies can be found at: https://covid19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations.
Meantime, HPPH is receiving many inquiries from people who want a copy of their vaccination receipt. People can download or print their vaccination receipt from the provincial portal at https://covid19.ontariohealth.ca/.
If someone needs help getting a digital or printed paper copy of their vaccination receipt, they should call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 . Individuals who just need help to print their receipt can visit a public library or Centre for Employment in Huron Perth. If a person doesn’t have a health card or still needs assistance after calling the Provincial Contact Centre, they can call HPPH at 1-888-221-2133.
