Grey Bruce schools host Back-to-School Vaccine Clinics

child rests after being vaccinated.

Vaccine should be top of the to-do list in getting ready for back-to-school in September.

Vaccination remains the most effective way to prevent severe illness and complications from COVID-19 and its variants. All students age 12 and older are urged to get both first and second doses of the vaccine prior to returning to school in person in September.

To provide easy access to vaccines, mobile pop-up clinics will take place in high schools across Grey Bruce before the beginning of the school year. Clinics are drive-in, walk-in, bike-in; no appointment is needed. These clinics are geared towards students and their families, but are open to all.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
