We’re getting a better idea where we might be getting COVID-19 vaccines.

The task force setting up the process in Lambton says there will be a number of clinics throughout the region including at the Wyoming Fairgrounds, the Forest Kimball Hall and the Point Edward Arena’s Optimist Hall.

Lambton Public Health is also working with Sarnia officials to pilot a drive up option to serve people with mobility issues.

It’s also looking into some temporary sites in Brooke-Alvinston, Oil Springs and St. Clair Township.

Not everyone is happy with the plan. Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley was upset Sarnia won’t have a permanent clinic, particularly since it is the largest community in Lambton.
The city was expected to meet further with the task force to talk about a permanent vaccine clinic.

Even though the locations are being secured, it still isn’t clear when the vaccination clinics will be able to set up. The federal government is still having problems securing vaccines for the country. Lambton has received about 1,100 vaccines so far to give the first doses to residents of long term care.
