COVID-19 Vaccine Disbursement in North Algoma
A consortium of partners in North Algoma led by Algoma Public Health’s Wawa office is actively planning the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine in the region. The coordination efforts are being organized with the communities of Dubreuilville, Wawa, and White River along with our indigenous partners at Michipicoten First Nations and Missanabie Cree.
“Health care and municipal partners across North Algoma are setting into motion Ontario’s vaccine distribution plan; the local collaboration has been strong and essential to getting needles to arms quickly” said Samantha Moore, Public Health Nurse-Wawa office.
To date, long term care residents in Wawa have been fully inoculated. Essential caregivers, 175 highest priority health care workers and Michipicoten First Nations on reserve members have received their first dose. In the days to come, vaccination for adults 80 years of age and over, healthcare workers and Indigenous adults 55 years of age and over will have access to the vaccine.
At this time, we are working directly with eligible individuals to book appointments based on vaccine flow. Please stay tuned for booking updates as clinics roll out across the region.
