The Sarnia Primary Control Group (SPCG) met electronically with staff from Lambton Public Health (LPH), Bluewater Health, Lambton County, and Point Edward regarding developments related to COVID-19.

Local Update:

The group received an update from Dr. Ranade, Lambton County’s Medical Officer of Health, regarding the COVID-19 situation in Sarnia-Lambton.

Although online pre-registration is now closed for individuals 90+ years of age and their essential caregivers, those unable to get access to the vaccination appointment pre-registration, can still call Lambton Public Health at 519-383-8331 Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30pm to book an appointment.

As more COVID-19 vaccine is allocated to Sarnia-Lambton it will allow for expansion to the next identified priority groups. Details will be released by LPH to support notification and access through registration.
