Vaccine now given to all consenting residents and staff in Grey Bruce LTC and high-risk retirement facilities


long term care vaccination

The Grey Bruce Health Unit confirms that the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine has been given to all residents, staff, and essential caregivers (who consented to the vaccine) in all 19 long-term care and seven high-risk retirement homes in Grey Bruce.

The first round of vaccine to these residents, caregivers and staff ensures a significant milestone in preventing transmission of the COVID-19 virus in settings where the risk of complications can be serious.

In addition, those who were first to get their vaccine in January have received their second dose, and we anticipate sufficient supply to ensure the second dose for ALL residents, staff and essential caregivers will be received within recommended dosing schedules.

To date, 3,759 doses of the vaccine have been administered, putting us on schedule to move through the province’s framework for vaccine administration.

To view progress, and all of the details regarding the vaccine and the rollout plan in Grey and Bruce, please visit the Grey Bruce Health Unit website.

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.
