Public Health staff from the Nunatsiavut Department of Health and Social Development and Labrador-Grenfell Regional Health Authority are scheduled to be in Mud Lake on Wednesday, February 24 to administer the first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to all eligible residents, 18 years of age and older.
DHSD staff will arrange times for eligible individuals to receive the vaccine, which will be administered at the Community Centre.
The Moderna vaccine requires two doses to be effective. Residents will be advised when the second dose will be administered.
Residents who have specific questions about the vaccine or who aren’t sure it’s right for them, are encouraged to speak with their primary care provider ahead of Wednesday’s clinic.
The Nunatsiavut Government continues to work with all relevant authorities to ensure the vaccine is administered as quickly as possible in a safe and efficient manner.
For more information, please contact Kelly Jacobs, the Community Health Worker at 709-896-4055 or 709-899 4151.
