Waterloo Region’s COVID-19 vaccination task force is hosting walk-in clinics on “First Dose Friday” in an attempt to get people vaccinated in some high-priority neighbourhoods.

“Members of the public are strongly encouraged to protect themselves and those they love by getting their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible,” the task force said in a release.
