Haldimand County Paramedic Services offering community flu vaccine clinics

In late 2019, Haldimand County received $5,910 in funding from the Hamilton Norfolk Haldimand Brant Emergency Services Steering Committee (HNHB ESSC) to host influenza vaccination clinics across the community. There will be two upcoming days to receive your vaccine. Tuesday January 28, 2020 from 10am to 12pm at Brantwood Villa (1 Robert Dell Court, Cayuga) then from 12:30pm to 3pm at the Cayuga Administration Building, Lower drop in room. Next one is Thursday January 30, 2020 from 10am to 3pm at 503 Main St E Dunnville. Vaccinations are free, and no appointment is required.

Local influenza vaccine clinics are funded through the HNHB ESSC using funds from St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. The goal of the clinics is to enhance access to influenza vaccines for vulnerable residents and individuals with limiting medical issues.

Vaccinations will be administered by a Haldimand County Community Paramedic. Residents who wish to attend and receive a vaccination may do so on a walk-in basis during the clinic hours. While vaccinations are free, residents must provide a valid Ontario Health Card.

Additional vaccine clinic times and locations will be announced shortly at HaldimandCounty.ca.

Lake Erie conditions statement – high lake level outlook 

This message is to provide an update on the elevated potential for lakeshore flooding and erosion along the Lake Erie shoreline. Water levels remain well above average in all of the Great Lakes. As of October 10, Lake Erie’s level was 68 cm above the long-term average for this time of the year.

While the lake’s level has decreased over recent months, there remains a heightened risk of shoreline flooding, beach submersion, crawl space and septic system inundation, and wave-driven erosion due to these record-high static levels on Lake Erie. This risk is expected to remain in place through the fall.

Local police and Haldimand County flood co-ordinators are advised that there is higher than normal potential for shoreline flooding and shore erosion through late 2019. The public is reminded to exercise caution around the shoreline, as well as nearby rivers and streams. Private land owners should prepare their properties as best as possible, and monitor shoreline erosion works on their properties. The higher than normal lake level coupled with wave action can impact and cause failure of shoreline erosion works.

Lake conditions and forecasts are being monitored closely and flood messages will be issued as necessary based on Lake level forecasts.

Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry Updated Provincial Flood Watch

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry updated a Provincial Flood Watch for Lake Erie based on high static lake level on October 8, 2019, which indicates:

  • Great Lakes water levels remain well above average with most continuing at or near record highs.
  • Lake Erie’s September monthly mean level was 69 cm above average, a new record high for the month.
  • Lake Erie fell 12 cm last month, which is more than its average September decline of 9 cm.
