CORNWALL, Ontario – On Wednesday, January 12, hospitalizations in the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) region continued to rise.
The EOHU asked residents who have booked COVID-19 vaccination appointments at their clinics to check the EOHU website on the day of their appointment. Delays or cancellation of vaccination clinics are possible, the EOHU warned, as a result of COVID-19 related staff absences.
“Increases in COVID-19 cases have impacted the EOHU, much like many businesses and industries in Ontario, and some of our clinic staff have to isolate to prevent further spread.” said Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health at the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU). “We see thousands of clients at our vaccination clinics every week, and the safety of our staff, their families, and our community is our top concern. We understand frustrations with the situation, and we are doing everything we can to continue vaccinating as many people as possible.”
