Residents 50 years of age and older, who live in the Bradford West Gwillimbury L3Z postal code are now eligible to book a COVID-19 vaccine.
Based on ongoing high rates of COVID-19 transmission, hospitalizations, and deaths, the postal code area has been identified as a hot spot as part of a province-wide targetted vaccination approach. The L3Z postal code area was the only one identified throughout Simcoe-Muskoka in this initiative. This week, Bradford West Gwillimbury saw the highest weekly incidence rate of COVID-19 throughout Simcoe-Muskoka, for the fourth consecutive week.
Eligible residents can book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment through the provincial portal. In addition to community clinics, the local health unit is working on other ways of vaccinating Bradford West Gwillimbury residents. Details of these pop-up clinics will be shared when available.
