March 15-20 is VAXI-PALOOZA! Join us on our Vaxi-Taxi in 18 locations across LGL

MEDIA RELEASE:

Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit

March 2, 2022


From March 15 to 20, 2022, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Health Unit will be bringing a mobile vaccine vehicle to 18 locations throughout Leeds & Grenville and Lanark. Our goal is to get as many people vaccinated as possible, especially children 5-11, so we are bringing vaccination clinics to areas where access had been limited.


The Vaxi-Taxi will be equipped to administer first, second, third and booster doses on a walk-in basis. Anyone five years of age or older can get their first or second dose. Booster doses will be available for those who are eligible. Both Moderna and Pfizer will be available onboard along with fun and celebrations to mark the wonderful job our communities have done to lead the province in vaccine coverage rates for those 5 years and older.


All COVID-19 safety precautions will be followed on board, including the required pre-vaccination screening and post-vaccination monitoring. The Vaxi-Taxi staff will be available to answer any questions and discuss any concerns. If you have mobility issues the staff may be able to vaccinate you in your car.


Things to think about how to get ready for the Vaxi-Taxi:

  • Bring your health card — if you do not have a health card or if it’s expired, bring another form of government-issued photo identification such as a driver’s licence, passport, status card or birth certificate.

  • Eat and drink something before you arrive to prevent feeling faint or dizzy while being vaccinated

  • Dress for the weather in case there is a line-up; Wear clothing that allows for easy access to your upper arm, such as a loose-fitting top or a t-shirt

  • Wear a mask that covers your nose, mouth and chin
