Lincoln, ON – (April 1, 2021) – It has come to the attention of Town staff that there has been an error in the provincial COVID-19 vaccine registration portal that has led to appointments being scheduled for Saturday, April 3 at the Lincoln Community Centre (Seniors Centre). However, there is no clinic available in Lincoln on April 3.
