Some Gananoque Residents Soon Able to Be Vaccinated

Public Notices

In recent weeks, the news of vaccinations now available in the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit (LGLDHU) has sparked questions around when residents can receive the vaccine. The report of vaccines becoming available locally is welcome news after a year of dealing with the pandemic. The Health Unit is asking for everyone’s assistance. Be Informed! Stay Healthy! Be Patient!

In line with the Province, the Town is echoing recommendations that residents get vaccinated when it does become available to you or your family members. It is an important tool to help stop the spread of the virus so everyone can resume to a life of normalcy. The Province acknowledges that it is unknown exactly how much of the population needs to be vaccinated to create herd immunity, however, they encourage as many people as possible in Ontario to
get vaccinated.

“We all want the same thing. We want to resume a life with friends, family and the freedom to go places without this cloud over our heads” stated Mayor Lojko. “I urge all residents to get the vaccine when it becomes available to you. Getting the vaccine is you continuing to do your part”.

The sequence or order of vaccination is outlined on the health unit website: https://healthunit.org/ . At this time, the roll out plan is targeted to complete long term care and high risk homes, staff, residents and designated care givers before moving to Stage 2 which include highest priority and very high priority health care workers and adults 80+. While you wait for your vaccine; stay healthy, continue practicing social distancing, wash your hands and wear a mask!
