The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s (MCA) Community Health Program (CHP) is notifying the community that the fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility has been opened up to all individuals age 18 and up. CHP is now booking appointments for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th doses of COVID-19 vaccines (Moderna and Pfizer).

Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kieran Moore, has confirmed that the province is currently experiencing its seventh wave of the COVID-19 virus. Cases of COVID-19 have risen, as have hospital and ICU admissions for COVID-related illnesses. Cases are expected to spike over the next two weeks. At this time, Ontario is not reinstating public health measures such as mask mandates or workplace capacity reductions. 

While masks are not required, they are recommended when engaging with vulnerable populations (immunocompromised individuals and elders) or when physical distancing is not possible when indoors. 

With the onset of the seventh wave of COVID-19 and an increase in cases in and around the Akwesasne community, the CHP encourages those who have not received their COVID-19 vaccines or boosters, to register for an appointment. 

To register for an appointment to receive your COVID-19 vaccine or booster, please contact the Community Health Program at 613-575-2341 ext. 3220.
