COVID-19 Vaccination Distribution
The COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan for Chatham-Kent is being managed collaboratively, determined in accordance with Provincial guidelines, and informed by an Ethical Framework for COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution from the Ministry of Health. Multiple scenarios and plans are required due to the complexity of needs associated with different vaccines and communities, and to ensure a safe, fair, and quick distribution practice.
When you’re eligible for a vaccine, don’t delay your chance. Get it as soon as you can as vaccine supply can change, and it’s best to protect yourself as soon as possible.
