Future Vaccination Centre

Windsor Regional Hospital (WRH), along with our partners at the City of Windsor, the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) and property manager Cushman & Wakefield Asset Services Canada, are pleased to announce the future opening of a new mass COVID-19 vaccination site at Windsor’s Devonshire Mall.

The Devonshire Mall Vaccination Centre (located at the former Sears location at the north end of the mall) will be opened on Monday, June 21, 2021. Vaccinations remain available by appointment only and no walk-ins are permitted. This site will be available soon for booking online at WEVax.ca from June 21 onwards.

The new site was selected for ongoing vaccination needs while we begin the process to decant the vaccination centres at the University of Windsor’s Windsor Hall (the former Windsor Star building downtown) and the St. Clair College Sportsplex to allow both of those locations to return to their respective educational and athletic purposes in time for the fall 2021 semester.

The timeline for the decanting of these locations is as follows:

  • Effective June 19, 2021, the University of Windsor's Windsor Hall Vaccination Centre located at Pitt and Ferry in downtown Windsor will be vacated and returned to the university. All patients with vaccination appointments at Windsor Hall between today and June 18 should continue to attend Windsor Hall as scheduled. All patients who may have pre-booked second dose appointments at Windsor Hall between July 11and July 21 will be rebooked at the same time and date for the Devonshire Mall Vaccination Centre. These individuals will be contacted directly to confirm that they are aware of the new location.
  • Effective July 22, 2021, the St. Clair College Sportsplex Vaccination Centre located at the St. Clair College Campus will be vacated and returned to the college. All patients with vaccination appointments at the Sportsplex between today and July 21, 2021, should continue to come to the Sportsplex as scheduled.
  • All other Windsor/Essex vaccination centres will remain open until further notice.

WRH, the City of Windsor and WECHU want to thank both St. Clair College and the University of Windsor for their tremendous partnership and dedication to the health of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will have an opportunity to celebrate both of these outstanding community partners soon as we near the dates where we vacate each of those locations.

WRH, City of Windsor and WECHU also want to thank Chris Savard, Associate Director, his team at Cushman & Wakefield Asset Services Canada, and Devonshire Mall and its owners, the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP), for agreeing to allow us to use the former Sears facility for the operation of a vaccination centre for a sum of $1. This is yet another great example of the dedication of our local partners in continuing to ensure the health and safety of our community as we move forward in vaccinating our region against the COVID-19 virus.
