Vaccine Questions or Concerns?

  • If you have a personal health-related question (i.e. is this vaccine safe for me?), please contact a community nurse at the Ross River Health Centre by calling 969-4444; 
  • Visit the COVID-19 Information kiosk at the General Store next Wednesday to learn more about the vaccine and the clinic. A representative from the clinic will be on location to answer any questions you may have.
