We are still in a pandemic: keep your vaccinations up to date

With the holidays behind us our minds turn to getting the kids back into school and returning to a different momentum when it comes to the work we do and the interests we involve ourselves in.

We don’t want to think about the pandemic – so far, you might say, I have been Ok – which is nice but there re many that have not been Ok and some of those people are no longer with us.

The crowds we saw at RibFest were for the most part maskless – what will we see in the way of new reports on infections in about 10 days?

People are still being infected – don’t be one of them.

The Regional Heath people, those are the people, along with the nurses and the people working in long term care facilities are the ones doing the really heavy lifting report that:

first booster doses are now available for children aged 5 to 11 years at Halton’s Paediatric Clinics.
Appointments began September 1; additional appointments are added regularly on Halton’s Vaccine Clinics webpage.

Evening appointments are also available starting September 6.  Click HERE to book an appointment

As of Tuesday, August 30, 1,388,675 doses have been administered in Halton. This represents 88 per cent of Halton’s eligible population who have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, 85 per cent who have received two doses, 62 per cent who have received three doses and 19 per cent who have received four doses.

The vaccination status dashboard is updated on Tuesday and Friday between 12 and 2 p.m. Please click HERE here to view the full dashboard.

We are still in a pandemic – we still have to be careful and keep our vaccinations up to date. One dose doesn’t do it.
