NOTL pharmacy opens COVID vaccine wait list
Sean Simpson

With vaccines starting to arrive in Canada, again, and the province gearing up to make it a priority to inoculate people over 80, a NOTL pharmacy has begun compiling a waiting list for those who want the vaccine.

Simpson's Pharmacy is still awaiting full information on the vaccine rollout plan, but last week started collecting names via its website so it will be ready to go once the medications arrive.

“We are taking this step to build a notification list so that we are able to quickly identify those that wish to be vaccinated, as soon as it is their turn, as specified by the priority groups set out by our public health authorities," pharmacist Sean Simpson told The Lake Report.

"We are doing everything in our power to ensure that vaccines get in to the arms of our local residents as quickly as possible," he said.

Simpson's expects to be in the vaccination rollout but the government has not yet said exactly when pharmacies will be allocated the drugs.
