Eastern Health Encouraging Individuals to Cancel Duplicate COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments

July 20, 2021 – St. John’s, NL:  Eastern Health is reminding individuals of the importance of canceling appointments which are no longer required at COVID-19 vaccine clinics. This may include previously scheduled appointments due to a change in appointment time or location, i.e., getting a vaccine from a physician or pharmacist. Individuals may cancel their appointment through their reminder email, the Pomelo website or by calling 1-800-563-3692 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.
