Letter: Why delays in getting a booster?

Dear editor:

Why is it that an adult cannot receive a booster shot in the Niagara region, unless they are lucky enough to book one with a local pharmacy?

After all the promotion done by all levels of government and experts to “get a booster shot” as soon as possible, why is it that the Niagara public health department is slow to react by not providing adult clinics at arenas and community centres?

Last year's slow start was due to a lack of vaccine. What’s the excuse this year?

Pharmacies are overwhelmed by the demand for booster shots and cannot keep up, their waiting lists are several weeks long and yet we have been urged to get a booster as soon as possible.

I guess Niagara public health missed the memo.
