HPPH extending second dose time frame to administer more first doses

Huron Perth Public Health

Huron Perth Public Health will be extending the time interval for second doses of COVID-19 vaccines up to 16 weeks, following provincial direction.

This will mean cancelling most currently booked appointments for second doses and offering more first doses.

Not all second doses are being extended. Residents of long-term care homes, retirement homes, Elder Care Lodges and Assisted Living facilities will continue to receive their second dose of vaccine between 21 to 42 days.

HPPH will share more information about how to book second doses in the near future.

Vaccinations are still only available to eligible groups. Anyone who wants to be vaccinated will have an opportunity to be vaccinated, just at a later date.
