KITCHENER -- Three Waterloo Region COVID-19 vaccine clinics will have walk-in spots available for first doses starting on Wednesday.

Walk-ins will be available at The Boardwalk in Waterloo, Health Sciences Campus in Kitchener and Waterloo Region Public Health in Waterloo. More clinics may be added, depending on public response and operational capacity.

“As the highly transmissible Delta variant spreads in our community, it is critical that we get the vaccine to people who still need to receive their first dose,” said Dept. Chief Shirley Hilton, who is the head of the Waterloo Region Vaccine Distribution Task Force, in a news release. “No one who wants the vaccine will be left behind – these walk-in spots are available to make it easier for anyone who still needs to get a first dose.”
