People who are 50 and older and who live in “hot spot” neighbourhoods in Kitchener and Cambridge can now pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Public health has identified those neighbourhoods as:
- Vanier/Rockway in Kitchener.
- Country Hills in Kitchener.
- Alpine/ Laurentian in Kitchener.
- Victoria Hills/Cherry Hill in Kitchener.
- Shades Mills in Cambridge.
“Members of the public who are 50-plus and live in one of the identified high-risk neighbourhoods are strongly encouraged to pre-register for the vaccine, and when they receive notification that it’s their turn to book an appointment, to do so right away,” Sharon Ord, acting communications lead for the region’s vaccine distribution task force, said in an email on Thursday.
People are encouraged to book online through the region’s website.
In Guelph, a “hot spot” has been identified in the area where the postal code starts with N1K.
Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health is in the process of updating its website to allow people in that postal code area to pre-register for an appointment.
