As York Region continues to administer vaccines under Phase 1 of the Provincial Vaccine Distribution plan, many York Region residents are anxious to know when it is their turn.
Council of King Township is proud to announce that the Trisan Centre in Schomberg will become a COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic.
The opening of the clinic will increase accessibility to vaccines for our residents and nearby communities. The Township’s participation in hosting and supporting the Clinic reinforces Council’s commitment to maintaining the health and safety of the public and mitigating risks that are posed by the current pandemic, while also championing the ability to partner with York Region and the Healthcare Provider in carrying out this crucial initiative.
Please note to accommodate the vaccine clinic, council had to make the decision to not to open the summer ice program at Trisan Centre.
Our Trisan Centre is opening Tuesday April 6th for a soft launch of the clinic.
Hours of operation are short – 0930 – 1240 hours and are based on the availability of the vaccine.
