The COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic in London’s Western Fair District Agriplex is packing up and moving across the street, the Middlesex-London Health Unit announced on Tuesday.

The vaccination clinic, which first opened on December 23, 2020, will cease operations at the Agriplex on September 29 and move to the main building in the Western Fair District, health unit officials said.

The clinic will reopen on October 3 in the space formerly occupied by Western Fair Raceway’s simulcast area, which is in the same building as Gateway Casinos London, the health entity said. Since Tuesday, the simulcast area has been moved to the East Annex.

According to the health unit, more than 1.2 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been distributed in London and Middlesex since the Agriplex clinic opened in late 2020.

Health department officials say the announcement is being made now so people can book appointments at the new clinic site. Those wishing to book an appointment at the new location after September 29 can select Western Fair Vaccination Clinic on the local vaccination booking portal.

The update comes a day after the health entity announced the local launch of Moderna’s Omicron-targeted bivalent COVID-19 vaccine.

Currently, those deemed most vulnerable are entitled to the bivalent vaccine. All Ontarians 18 and older are eligible to enter starting September 26th.

“Anyone who has not received a first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine must receive the Moderna Spikevax or Pfizer Comirnaty monovalent vaccine to complete their primary vaccine series before they are eligible for a booster dose,” the statement reads a media release from the health unit published on Monday.

People who test positive for COVID-19 must wait at least three months before receiving a booster shot.
