WINDSOR ON. _ Windsor and Essex County residents have until 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 2nd to walk-in and get vaccinated against COVID-19 at the Devonshire Mall vaccination clinic. For grade 7 – 12 students who have not started or completed their vaccination series for Hepatitis B, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and/or Meningococcal Disease and want to receive the vaccine at Devonshire Mall, they must book an appointment before April 1st (pending appointment availability).
The Devonshire Mall location in the former Sears outlet at the north end of the mall opened as a COVID-19 vaccination centre on Monday, June 21, 2021. Since that time, more than 125,000 first and second doses have been administered as well as close to 96,000 third and fourth “booster” shot vaccinations. Earlier this month on Tuesday, March 8th, the location began offering catch-up immunizations for local students in grades 7 to 12 as well as continuing to offer walk-in requests for eligible 1st, 2nd or 3rd and 4th vaccinations against COVID-19.
We encourage all residents who want to receive their recommended next vaccination, if eligible, to visit the Devonshire Mall vaccination centre before its closure at 3:30 pm on Saturday, April 2nd. Until then, current hours are Tuesdays 11:30 am to 6 pm and Wednesdays to Saturdays from 9 am to 3:30 pm.

The Devonshire Mall vaccination centre has been a collaborative effort of the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit, Windsor Regional Hospital and the City of Windsor. We look forward to holding an event soon to celebrate the efforts of the amazing staff who served at this facility over the past 10 months.
We also wish to thank property manager Primaris REIT for their support throughout the use of the space at Devonshire Mall over these past nine months.
