Helping seniors book vaccination appointments

The Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library is lending a hand to local residents aged 65 years and older who’d like help registering for their COVID-19 vaccination.

“Some of our residents have experienced struggles when trying to register for appointments,” Mayor Iain Lovatt says. “We need to make this process as smooth and easy as possible, and the library will be stepping in to assist anyone who needs a helping hand. This will help Stouffville’s seniors get vaccinated as soon as supply allows.”

The free program, called Stouffville Vaccinates, will also provide transportation to the appointment if needed.

“The Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library recognizes that making COVID-19 vaccination appointments can be a daunting task,” Library CEO Margaret Wallace says. “This is especially true for those who lack the technical skill or equipment, including internet access.”

To register for the program, call the library at 905-642-7323, ext. 5230 from Monday to Thursday between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. All personal information collected will be used solely for registration and will be destroyed. The program is offered in partnership with the Stouffville Christian Ministerial Association and Markham Vaccinates.
