Two drive-through style vaccination clinics are coming to Oxtongue Lake and Stanhope fire halls.
On Oct. 19 there will be clinic at the Stanhope fire hall, followed by a Oct. 21 clinic at the Oxtongue Lake fire hall.
Anyone born before 2009 can be vaccinated at both locations from 3-6 p.m. with no reservation required.
Both mRNA (Pfizer and Moderna) vaccines will be available.
There are no active cases of COVID-19 in Haliburton, and 17 active cases in the HKPR region.
Medical officer of health Dr. Natalie Bocking reported Oct. 13 that most cases are occurring in a younger demographic, between 20-39.
Since July 1, 63 per cent of cases were unvaccinated, 20 per cent were partially vaccinated and 17 per cent were fully vaccinated.
Correction: The Highlander incorrectly stated both clinics were on Oct. 19. The Oxtongue Lake clinic is on Oct. 21. The Highlander regrets the error.
