Nunatsiavut Government: COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Nain
Public health staff from the Nunatsiavut Department of Health and Social Development as well as Labrador-Grenfell Regional Health Authority are scheduled to be in Nain on Friday, January 15 and Saturday, January 16 to administer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to all eligible residents, 18 years of age and older.
It is anticipated that it will take a couple of days to administer the vaccine to the entire community.
Public health staff will arrange times for eligible individuals to receive the vaccine, which will be administered at the JS Centre.
Priority for the first doses will be given to health-care workers and seniors before the rest of the population is inoculated, as per federal and provincial directives.
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.
