A new dedicated vaccine call centre has been launched in Lambton County.

Officials say the idea is to increase call capacity and provide improved access to vaccine information and support.

The new call centre can be reached at 226-254-8222 or visit GetTheVaccine.ca.

Meantime a vaccination clinic is being held on Walpole Island on Friday for any band members 18 and over needing to get their first dose. Those interested can call the Walpole Island Health Centre to book an appointment.
