COVID-19 walk-in vaccination site opens at Fairview Pointe Claire
MONTREAL -- A temporary COVID-19 walk-in vaccination site is now open at CF Fairview Pointe Claire, the CIUSSS de l'Ouest-de-l'Île-de-Montréal announced Monday.
"This temporary site, where vaccines will be administered daily until supplies run out...will just be another stop on your back-to-school shopping list," it states, adding the initiative is to ensure a "healthy back-to-school for children across the West Island."
Any West Islander who needs a first or second dose of a vaccine is invited to visit the clinic.
"Nurses will be onsite to answer questions and to provide solutions for those who have vaccine anxiety," the CIUSSS de l'Ouest-de-l'Île-de-Montréal adds.
Those aged 12 and 13-years-old will have to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Teens aged 14 and up can give their own consent for vaccination.
The CIUSSS de l'Ouest-de-l'Île-de-Montréal reminds anyone coming for a second dose that the interval between shots is a minimum of four weeks.
To get to the vaccination site from outside, park near lamp post #15 at entrance #1.
The site will be open:
- Wednesday to Friday: 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- Saturday to Tuesday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The temporary vaccine clinic will be open until Aug. 31.
