The Grey Bruce Health Unit wants to assure those 80+ who do not have a family physician or whose physician is outside Grey Bruce, they will be able to book an appointment at a local clinic as soon as the provincial booking website and booking phone line, both being piloted by the Grey Bruce Health Unit, are operational on March 15.
For week of March 8, Weekly Vaccine Schedule - March 8 will focus on Community Health Care Workers in Highest/Very High Categories; Clients over 80; Clinics within First Nation Communities; SOAHAC clinics for First Nation Clients not living in First Nation Communities.
To book appointments for those 80 years old and older:
Those not in this age group, including those with health conditions, are directed to use the provincial booking system following March 15, 2021, based on your order in the provincial framework.
Clinics and other venues where the vaccine will be administered are being developed in venues across the two counties. No appointments are currently available – you will be contacted directly to book your appointment in the coming days/week. Appointments are not available by calling or contacting the Health Unit at this time. Clinic will be available to residents in Grey Bruce as close to their communities as possible.
Ontario’s Phase 2 vaccination rollout is expected to begin in April 2021, depending on vaccine availability. The target populations in Phase 2 are based on age and risk. Vaccines will be offered to the following groups:
The Grey Bruce Health Unit staff will provide the clinics with the supply of vaccine, the registration of all patients and receipts for proof of vaccine.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful 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 modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
