On December 27, 2021, the Ohsweken Public Health was advised that the Six Nations COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Dajoh Youth and Elders Centre has been deemed a high-risk exposure setting for COVID-19 - due to a person presenting to the clinic and later testing positive for COVID-19.
Due to the high transmissibility or rapid spreading of Omicron (which is becoming the more dominant strain of COVID-19):
- Anyone who attended this vaccination clinic should isolate immediately and continue isolation, as long as they remain symptom-free, up until and including December 30.
- Anyone who attended this clinic and is currently symptomatic or becomes symptomatic should immediately seek a COVID-19 test and continue isolating.
- Those who test positive will need to isolate for 10 days starting from the day of the positive test result or symptom onset date. Additional instructions may also be provided by public health.
Individuals who have symptoms or are current contacts of a COVID-19 case should be self-isolating and not seek vaccination until they are out of isolation.
Anyone attending the vaccine clinic should wear a medical face mask or a 3-layer cloth mask.
Vaccination Clinics previously scheduled for December 29, 30, 31 have been CANCELLED.
Vaccinations will be available again starting January 4, 2022 at Dajoh.
