Enhanced COVID-19 vaccine clinics as eligibility expands

On October 29, 2021, NACI (National Advisory Committee on Immunization) announced increased recommendations for the administration of a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to:

  • Adults 70+ years of age;
  • People who received two doses of the AstraZeneca Vaxzevria/COVISHIELD vaccine or one dose of the Janssen vaccine;
  • Adults in or from First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities; and
  • Adults who are frontline healthcare workers who have direct in-person contact with patients and who were vaccinated with a very short interval are eligible to receive three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, with specific eligibility criteria and dosing intervals.

See full details here: Guidance: Infection Prevention and Control Measures for Healthcare Workers in Acute Care Facilities (canada.ca)

The Ministry of Health of Ontario, Chief Medical Officer of Health of Ontario, and other provincial counterparts are reviewing this decision. As soon as the ministry provides guidance to Public Health Units in Ontario, the Grey Bruce Health Unit will activate it’s plan to administer third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to meet this new eligibility criteria. Public Health will continue to offer first and second doses to eligible residents at all clinics, with no need for appointments.

Please do not call to inquire about appointments at this time.

The Grey and Bruce Health Unit will host vaccine clinics at municipal locations on a regular basis that will have enhanced capacity and will be able to accommodate the volume related to this enhanced eligibility, while using an appointment system.

Booking only third dose appointments for all clinics will be done using the Provincial Booking system online or via the telephone. Details to be released when available. First and second doses do NOT require an appointment.

In addition, participating primary care providers and pharmacies will be other ways that individuals are able to get their 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.
