The clinic intends to serve those who cannot travel to mass vaccination clinics in London. The Caradoc Community Center in Mount Brydges is currently the only mass vaccination clinic in the area that is not located in London.

The two-day Dorchester Clinic is the result of a collaboration between Middlesex County, the Thames Center community and the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU).

The unveiling of the clinic was praised by Thames Center Mayor Allison Warwick, who paid tribute to Deputy Mayor Kelly Elliott for her “valuable work in the health unit”.

“These types of clinics are extremely important in our small and rural areas,” said Warwick.

This has taken a lot of legalism and energy, but I’m really excited to see @MLHealthUnit expanding with a pop-up clinic in @ThamesCentre to expand access to vaccines in our smaller communities. Thanks to the @ThamesCentre staff for working with MLHU to make this happen! #MiddlesexProud pic.twitter.com/AWDMFVu15V

The health officer of the MLHU, Dr. Chris Mackie said the two-day clinic will serve as a pilot to evaluate how well the pop-up model can help in expanding vaccine reach.

“If we test this and it is successful, we will certainly plan other pop-up mobile clinics in other communities around London and Middlesex,” said Mackie.
