The addition of the Earl Nichols site to the list of COVID-19 vaccination clinics will increase the number of appointments available to London and Middlesex County residents, as the region prepares to invite those over the age of 18 to receive their first dose of vaccine later this week.
While the newest vaccination clinic will not officially open until Tuesday, May 25th, the first appointments at the Earl Nichols COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic became available for booking starting Thursday, May 13th at 8:00 a.m..
The facility walk-through on May 21st will include a photo opportunity with the first person to receive a dose of COVID-19 vaccine at the Earl Nichols Vaccination Clinic.
