September 21, 2021
On September 14, based on the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and in alignment with NACI’s recommendation, the province will begin offering third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to additional vulnerable populations:
In addition to those already eligible:
A third dose will help to provide individuals in these groups with an improved immune response. Individuals in these groups are eligible to receive their third dose at a minimum of eight weeks following their second dose and will be contacted by their health care provider such as their primary care provider, specialist, or their hospital specialty program. Individuals unable to receive the vaccine from their providers can ask for a form from them indicating the patient’s eligibility. The form can be taken to participating physicians who will administer the vaccine. Participating local pharmacies are now able to administer 3rd doses. To book an appointment please contact the pharmacy directly.
Immunocompromised clients who are unable to access a third-dose vaccine from their healthcare provider may attend a local pharmacy that offers COVID-19 vaccine or any of the vaccine clinics hosted by the Grey Bruce Health Unit. No appointment is necessary. For a list of locations and times of clinics visit the Grey Bruce Health Unit Vaccine Clinic Schedule. Clients must be eligible in the categories described above and must provide the written provincial documentation signed by their physician, including the physician’s CPSO number. No other document or attestation will be accepted.
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 small donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
