Press Release

(Kahnawake – 25, Kentenhkó:wa/November 2021) The Kateri Memorial Hospital Centre (KMHC) and Public Safety Commission are pleased to announce the first COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic for children aged 5 to 11 years of age. Parents and Guardians of children within this age group can now book appointments by visiting the KMHC’s portal via Clic Santé.

Vaccination clinics for 5-to-11-year olds will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall on the following dates:

Friday, November 26: 3pm to 8pm
• Saturday, November 27: 9am to 5pm
• Tuesday, November 30: 3pm to 8pm
• Wednesday, December 1: 3:30pm to 8pm
• Friday, December 3: 3pm to 8pm
• Saturday, December 4: 9am to 5pm

A parent/guardian must accompany the child in order to provide informed consent. It is recommended to keep other children/family members at home in an effort to keep the number of people within the vaccination clinic at a minimum.

If a parent/guardian cannot attend the vaccination clinic with their child, a written consent form must be completed and sent with the adult accompanying the child.

As previously announced by the Kahnawake Education Center, vaccinations for this age group are not mandatory to attend any school in Kahnawà:ke. However, it is highly encouraged to have your children vaccinated to further decrease their level of risk of COVID-19 complications.
