Dear RMA Patients,
We know you are hoping to get your COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible and are seeking the latest information. Here is what we know now (March 12, 2021).
We have not received the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine in our clinic. The Astra Zeneca vaccine is being offered only to people ages 60-64 (if you are 60-64 as of the day of vaccination, or if you will be or have been 60-64 in 2021). It is available in pharmacies and some family doctors’ offices in certain health regions. We will let you know as soon as possible when the vaccine becomes available to us. Please do not call us at this time to try to book an appointment to receive the vaccine in our office. We need to keep our phone lines free for patients with immediate medical needs.
Vaccines for patients over 80 (born in 1941 or earlier):
If you are 80 or older and do not live in a care home, the Renfrew District Public Health Unit will have the most up to date information on the COVID vaccination efforts in our area. If you are over 80 (born in 1941 or earlier), click here to book your COVID VACCINATION APPOINTMENT. If you are unable to register online, you can call the Renfrew District Health Unit at 613-735-9724 or 1-800-267-1097 extension 200. Patients are asked to only leave one message with their name and phone number, and someone will return their call as soon as possible
