COVID-19 vaccine eligibility extended to everyone born in 2009

To support a safe return to school and to ensure more children and youth benefit from the protection offered by the vaccine, the Grey Bruce Health Unit will provide the Pfizer vaccine to those born in 2009. The province has extended eligibility to all those born in 2009, no longer requiring waiting until their twelfth birthday.

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

Vaccination remains the best way to prevent severe illness and complications from COVID-19 and its variants. All eligible students, born 2009 or earlier, are urged to get both first and second doses of the vaccine prior to returning to school in September.

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

For a complete list of clinics visit: Vaccine Clinics

Poor weather may result in the cancellation of clinics with little notice. Please follow our social media accounts (Twitter: @GBPublicHealth, Facebook: @greybrucepublichealth) for up-to-date announcements and cancellations.

 


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.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
