HPPH opens COVID-19 vaccination clinics for spring boosters

Huron Perth, ON – HPPH has launched its April COVID-19 vaccination clinics to meet Ontario’s new spring booster recommendations, including a clinic in Stratford on April 11 and one in Goderich on April 12. The April 11 clinic in Stratford will have walk-in availability from 11am to 3pm.

As of April 6, individuals in specific high-risk groups are recommended to receive a spring booster dose if at least six months (168 days) have passed since their last dose or confirmed COVID-19 infection. These high-risk groups are:

  • Individuals aged 65 years and older
  • Residents of long-term care homes, retirement homes, elder care lodges, and other congregate living settings for seniors
  • Individuals aged 18 years and older living in congregate care settings for people with complex medical care needs
  • Pregnant individuals
  • Individuals aged 18 years and older who are moderately to severely immunocompromised
  • Individuals aged 55 years and older who identify as First Nations, Inuit, or Metis, and their non-Indigenous household members aged 55 years and older.

If you are not a member of one of the above groups, and you have already received a COVID-19 booster on or after September 1, 2022, there is no current recommendation to receive a spring booster. However, if an individual aged five and older wishes to receive an additional booster dose they may do so, with informed consent, if at least 6 months (168 days) have passed since their previous dose or confirmed COVID-19 infection.

Layers of protection

Residents are encouraged to continue taking actions to prevent illness spread. Layering actions protect individuals, loved ones, and the community:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Screen for respiratory symptoms daily
  • Wear a mask in indoor public settings. Also consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings.
  • Choose outdoor spaces and reduce time in crowded indoor spaces as much as you can. If indoors, choose well ventilated spaces when possible.
  • Stay up-to-date with vaccines
  • Wash hands often
  • Regularly clean high-touch surfaces
  • Keep physical distance when possible, especially indoors. 
  • Improve ventilation and filtration in your home and maintain HVAC systems
