No vaccine demand at downtown clinic


Re: Jarvis: Want to get a COVID-19 vaccinatio­n downtown? No, thank you, by Anne Jarvis, March 25

It was interestin­g to read that the Windsor-essex County Health Unit's online bookings filled up quickly at the WFCU Centre and St. Clair College clinics (located on the city's outskirts).

The clinic in the city's core had appointmen­t availabili­ty every day Thursday through Saturday — even with an overwhelmi­ng amount of people eagerly waiting to get vaccinated and Windsor Regional Hospital's CEO David Musyj offering many incentives. Yet, it still could not attract a full house downtown.

Self-satisfacti­on came upon me due to the fact that I have always supported the location of the planned new hospital currently in the works ( just outside the city) and to me this is just one case in point where a large majority of people believe the city core is not the best place for medical facilities.

We are on the right track with the new hospital location.

As they say, “it's only five minutes away.”

Let's keep it moving along. Bill Mailloux, Amherstbur­g
