Kawartha Lakes residents looking to get a booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine can do so at the Kawartha Lakes Wellness Fair on Wednesday, September 27th.
The fourth annual Wellness Fair, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Victoria Park Armoury (210 Kent St. W., Lindsay), is returning after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
The free community event provides an opportunity for the public to learn about mind and body wellness and connect with local businesses. There will be live demonstrations, presentations, and interactive activities involving fitness and health awareness with community health and wellness experts. Every guest will receive one free raffle ticket to win prizes supplied by vendors.
The Kawartha Lakes Paramedic Service will also be at the event to provide COVID-19 booster shots. Fall is respiratory virus season, and public health authorities recommend those aged five years and older should consider getting their booster shot to maximize protection against COVID-19 when peak circulation of the virus is expected.
Advance registration is required to ensure the paramedic service can order an appropriate number of doses. You can register online or by emailing your name to email@example.com. Make sure to bring your health card to the event.
