The GO-VAXX mobile clinic will be in Niagara-on-the-Lake today, March 17, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The mobile clinic will be at the Daniel J. Patterson campus of Niagara College in parking lot A2.

As Dr. Azim Kasmani noted in this week’s Lake Report, vaccinations are now one of our best defences against COVID-19 and possible future restrictions.

With restrictions waning across the country and the removal of the mask mandate on March 21, Niagara Health has also loosened its restrictions for visitors in certain areas of regional hospitals.

As of March 14, rules for inpatient units, labour and delivery, and the newborn intensive care unit changed, Niagara Health said in a news release.

The changes include allowing two visitors at the bedside at a time with no restriction on total number of visitors throughout the day.

Children and youth are able to visit as long as they can wear a mask at all times.

Patients may designate up to two essential care partners who can be present 24/7 but need to coordinate with other visitors to ensure only two people are at the bedside at a time.

Visiting hours continue to be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Niagara Health said there may be times when patients are unable to see any visitors due to COVID-19.

“Check with the patient’s unit ahead of your visit to see if your loved one can have a visitor.”
