Municipal Parks and Recreation and School Boards: Re: Youth Turning 12 Within 6 Months Are Permitted to Be Vaccinated
Currently, Lambton Public Health has mandated additional proof of vaccination requirements for individuals 12 years of age and older upon entering facilities used for sports and recreational activities.
As stated in the Letter of Instruction
, beginning October 30 individuals 12 years of age and older are required to show identification and proof of vaccination for a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. By November 30, all individuals aged 12+ must show identification and proof of full vaccination (two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine plus 14 days following the second dose).
Vaccine Eligibility for Youth
: As we head into the new year, Lambton County youth who are turning 12 years of age within 6 months are permitted to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Expanding vaccine eligibility will facilitate full vaccination of those turning 12 early in the new year, thus meeting the vaccine requirements that enable them to continue to participate in their sports while keeping the community safe. It is important to share this information with any sports organizations and groups that this will impact.
Upcoming Vaccine Clinics
: Lambton Public Health has several upcoming clinics that will provide walk-in vaccination options to all eligible persons. Refer to getthevaccine.ca
for vaccination options at local clinics and pharmacies.
In addition, you are encouraged to review the COVID-19 Response
webpages for further COVID-19 information.
