The Georgina Ice Palace vaccination clinic will be forced to close from April 2 to 5, due to delays in shipments of the Moderna vaccine, according to York Region.
“Due to delays in anticipated shipments of the Moderna vaccine, York Region will regrettably need to close three vaccination clinics from April 2 to 5 inclusive,” said Patrick Casey, York Region’s Director of Corporate Communications, in a email to The Post.
“These clinics include the Georgina Ice Palace in the Town of Georgina, the Aaniin Community Centre in the City of Markham and the drive-thru clinic at Canada’s Wonderland.”
Mr. Casey said that with additional vaccine deliveries expected next week, these clinics will reopen at that time.
According to York Region, all other clinics will continue to operate at capacity 7 days a week.
These include those located at Richmond Green Sports Centre in the City of Richmond Hill, Maple Community Centre and Vaughan Cortellucci Hospital in the City of Vaughan, Cornell Community Centre in the City of Markham and Ray Twinney Recreation Complex in the Town of Newmarket.
However, Mr. Casey said clinic operations remain dependent on vaccine supply.
