Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Department of Health (DOH) is reminding the community that the pre-registration for the COVID-19 vaccine is still open. DOH is stressing the importance of registering now for the vaccine, to ensure that you are on the list to be contacted for an appointment once the community vaccine clinic is announced. Vaccine supply is limited, so reserve your spot for the community vaccine clinic by pre-registering as soon as possible.

The initial roll out of the vaccine has been completed, with the long-term care facilities residents and staff having received the first dose. The next phase of the vaccine distribution will be administering the vaccine to essential frontline staff (healthcare workers, first responders, etc.), community elders, then the general community. Akwesasronon residing within the City of Cornwall will be eligible to pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine.

There currently is not an anticipated date for the community vaccine clinic, as the DOH depends on the shipment of the vaccine to arrive from Eastern Ontario Health Unit.

To pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine, please call 613-575-2341 ext. 3219 (Jamie Cole) or ext. 3247 (Stephanie Buckshot). When calling, a brief questionnaire will be conducted.
