The next age group of Sarnia-Lambton residents can now reschedule their second COVID-19 immunization.

People 75 years of age and up who received their first shot on or before March 31 can book the second dose now, Lambton Public Health said today.

You will be contacted directly via email or phone to schedule a second shot.

If you are age 75 and older or immunized during this time period and haven’t been contacted by the end of Friday, call the Vaccine Call Centre from Monday to Friday (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) at 226-254-8222, or visit the Contact Us page at LambtonPublicHealth.ca.

Residents who received a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine during the same time period can book their next shot with another approved vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna, depending on availability). They may also choose a second dose of AstraZeneca through their pharmacy, the health unit said.

With increased supply, second doses are being rescheduled for earlier dates using the same age-based and priority sequencing as the first doses.

Clinics book up quickly and residents are asked to be patient.
