Special education workers 18 years of age and older who received notice from their school board, are now able to book an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine by calling the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit Call Centre at 1-800-563-2808.
At this time, online booking is not yet available to special education workers, and appointments are based on the availability of the mass immunization clinics.
The Health Unit has received a list from local school boards of special education workers who are eligible to book their appointment and will be verifying names of callers looking to book as part of this priority group.
The Health Unit is reminding the public to be patient when trying to book an appointment over the phone.
