Rural residents in Peterborough County have more options to get a COVID-19 vaccination closer to home, with three mass vaccine clinics opening in Apsley, Buckhorn, and Millbrook — and anyone in the province 60 and older can now book an appointment for a vaccine.
In addition to the existing clinic at Evinrude Centre (911 Monaghan Rd, Peterborough), clinics are opening at the following locations:
- North Kawartha Community Centre (340 McFadden Road, Apsley). Initial appointments will be available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. from Sunday, April 11th to Tuesday, April 13th.
- Buckhorn Community Centre (1782 Lakehurst Road, Buckhorn). Initial appointments will be available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. from Thursday, April 15th to Saturday, April 17th.
- Cavan Monaghan Community Centre (986 County Road 10, Millbrook). Initial appointments will be available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. from Monday, April 26th to Wednesday, April 28th.
The clinics will become available in the provincial booking system for appointments at covid-19.ontario.ca/book-vaccine five days before they open. If the clinics are full when you try to make an appointment, check again the following day as more time slots will become available. Appointments can also be booked over the phone by calling Peterborough Public Health’s booking centre at 249-494-5631 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.
The provincial government has now expanded vaccine eligibility at all mass clinics, which offer the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, to those 60 and older (born in or before 1961).
For people 55 and older (born in or before 1966), the following pharmacies in the Peterborough region are offering the AstraZeneca vaccine by appointment only: Costco Pharmacy (485 The Parkway), High Street Guardian Pharmacy (815 High Street, Unit 9), and Wal-Mart Pharmacy (1002 Chemong Road).
