Federal Cabinet Minister Visits Vaccine Clinic
Canada’s Minister of Public Services and Procurement visited Venture13 today and met with Northumberland CFDC and the Microfactory Co-operative. Together they reviewed some of the local PPE innovation projects that took place at Venture13’s MakerLab over the course of the last year, including the Northumberland.io face shield project. The Honourable Anita Anand then crossed the street to the Cobourg Community Centre where she toured “the incredibly efficient and inspiring vaccine clinic” organized by a “sea of orange” volunteers from Cobourg Rotary. She saluted the great work of volunteers and healthcare workers from the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit and congratulated all for administering 890 vaccines in one day (July 12, 2021).
