Covid-19 Vaccine Information

January 22, 2021

Hello RCHS clients,

As many of you know, Health Canada has approved the use of two new vaccines against COVID-19.

We realize that you have questions – good questions – that need to be answered before you can feel confident in these vaccines. Although we do not yet know exactly when the vaccine will be available to our clients, we want to provide some information to help you learn more and feel confident when it becomes available to us locally.

Public Health Units across the province have been tasked with coordinating the vaccination efforts for their individual health unit regions. Our local, Leeds Grenville and Lanark (LGL) district health unit has the answers to many frequently asked questions about the vaccines including information about distribution. They update this information frequently as it becomes available or changes. LGL public health Covid 19 Vaccine information and status

In addition, local physicians from the South East region have helped to create an excellent video to address many of your questions. Watch this video of Local Medical Officers of Health and Physicians Answering Questions About the COVID-19 Vaccines.

Vaccination against this virus is going to be integral to us all being able to move forward. So please, take a moment to browse this information and find out more about the vaccines, vaccine safety and the plan for local vaccine distribution.

In the meantime, we will continue to be here to serve you through our offices and hope you will stay safe while continuing to follow public health guidelines.

Supporting you in health,
Your RCHS team




The three Community Health Centres in our area are continuing to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and are working to ensure the health and well-being of our community, clients and staff.

Although most of our staff are working remotely from home, we continue to see our most vulnerable clients in person. We are also accepting appointments and new referrals for our counsellors/social workers, dietitians, and respiratory therapists, among others. Please call us or visit our websites for more information.

We have modified our hours of operation. Before you come to any of our locations, please call us and we will help you determine the best way to meet your needs.
