Executive Director's message
First, I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and well.
Ontario is once again in a state of lockdown, and there is a lot of conflicting information online regarding vaccines and regulations. It can all be quite confusing. To assist you, I have included a few key links with essential information below to help.Pharmacy Vaccine Locations:www.covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations
There are also pop-up vaccination clinics which may appear in the future in and around the BIA, so please keep an eye out on our social media and website for that information.
