The Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit has provided Today’s Northumberland with statistics regarding the COVID-19 vaccinations given at clinic locations in Northumberland County.
Below is a breakdown of doses given in Cobourg and Campbellford in recent weeks. Anne Marie Holt, the Health Unit’s Director of Health Protection, provided the information.
There is a reduction in vaccines provided at the CCC from when it was led by Northumberland Hills Hospital/Family Health Team compared to when the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit (HKPRDHU) took over operations.
This reduction coincided with a significant drop of around 1,500 doses each week in the supply of vaccine provided by the Province to the HKPRDHU region.
As a result, HKPRDHU couldn’t offer as many vaccines at the CCC clinic site.
As more vaccine deliveries have increased in April, HKPRDHU has ramped appointments at all its mass immunization clinic sites to start offering more vaccines to eligible residents.
Approximately 30,000 clinic appointments have since been made available in the provincial vaccine booking system for HKPRDHU residents.
The statistics on COVID-19 vaccinations at the clinic sites in Cobourg and Campbellford do not tell the whole picture.
There are also other COVID-19 vaccinations that HKPRDHU provided to local long-term care homes, retirement homes, and shelters. Between March 16 and March 30, a total of 1,086 doses were provided in these settings.
