Support available to help seniors get COVID-19 vaccine

Seniors living in Prince Edward County can get support booking their COVID-19 vaccine appointment and travelling to the clinic in Picton.

Seniors can borrow computer tablets and use them to book a vaccine appointment online (Ontario.ca/bookvaccine) thanks to a partnership between Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association and the Prince Edward County Library. In addition to booking a vaccine appointment, seniors can use the tablets to access other online services and connect with friends and family.

Training and support for using the tablets is provided by library staff. For more information about the program or to borrow a tablet, call Prince Edward Community Care at 613.476.7493 or the Picton library branch at 613.476.5962.

Seniors who require transportation to their vaccine appointment or other medical appointments can use the Prince Edward Community Care’s escorted transportation program. The volunteer driver waits while the client is at the appointment. The fees are reduced or waived if necessary. All COVID-19 safety protocols are in place for the safety of clients and volunteers. Call Community Care at 613.476.7493 to arrange transportation.

Age-based vaccine clinics are taking place at the Prince Edward Community Centre (375 Picton Main Street). Individuals aged 75 and older in 2021 are eligible to book an appointment at the Picton clinic. Please book an appointment in advance using the Ontario vaccine booking system (Ontario.ca/bookvaccine). You will require your health card number.

If you are unable to book online, please call the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1.888.999.6488. The line is available seven days a week between 8 am and 8 pm. Individuals who do not have a photo ID health card will be required to book by phone.

    Does anyone have any idea as to how fast the vaccines are rolling out here and when they might be picking up the pace?
