The Centre Wakefield La Pêche has been selected by CISSSO as one of six new COVID-19 vaccination sites in the Outaouais.
The opening date of the vaccination sites will depend on the number of vaccines received for distribution, however, once vaccinations begin, three of the sites, including Centre Wakefield La Pêche will operate seven days a week, 12 hours a day. The other two sites open seven days a week are the Buckingham Community Centre and the Palais des Congrès in Gatineau.
The community centre vaccination site will have 12 stations and CISSSO estimates it will be able to administer the vaccination to 10 people per hour once fully operational, and the six sites will be able to vaccinate between 3000 and 6000 people per day.
Three other sites will be open five days a week, seven hours a day and include:
Whissell Sports Complex, 530 Charles-August-Montreuil Street in St-André-Avellin (4 stations);
Centre Multifonctionnel de Maniwaki, home of Club de Curling de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, 50 Commercial
Street in Maniwaki (4 stations);
Campbell's Bay Recreational Center, 10-12 Second Street in Campbell's Bay (4 stations).
