Youth attending an upcoming mini-putt event will also be able to get their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Timmins Youth Wellness Hub has been offering outdoor activities at locations across the city on Tuesday afternoons from 1-3 p.m.
Aug. 10 there is a free mini-putt at Hollinger Park for all youth who are 12 to 25 years old. The Porcupine Health Unit and EMS will also be on-site offering a drop-in vaccine clinic for first or second doses from noon to 4 p.m.
“We are pleased to announce this collaboration with PHU and EMS to offer a vaccine clinic for youth. We will have a counsellor on-site who will be able to offer support for anyone that may be feeling nervous about getting the vaccine. PHU staff will also be available to answer any questions youth may have," said Mason Charbonneau, Timmins Youth Wellness Hub program and wellbeing coordinator, in a news release.
Youth will need to bring their own water bottle, a non-medical face mask and sunscreen. If someone doesn't have a face mask, the hub will supply one.
In addition to in-person activities, assistant coordinator Nikki St Clair said the hub also offers virtual programming on Instagram Live at 4 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
"These activities include cooking demonstrations, crafts, health and wellness activities, games, and more! All of our virtual activities are also saved to the IGTV tab of our Instagram profile, for youth to watch at any time," said St Clair.
