COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout Progress In Grey Bruce
The Grey Bruce Heath Unit is happy to announce that more than 80% of the eligible population in Grey Bruce have been immunized with at least two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 84.5% received one dose.
Also, 3rd doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to all eligible and consenting residents within 26 Long-Term Care and high risk retirement homes in Grey and Bruce.
The Grey Bruce Health Unit will continue its third dose campaign by immunizing, as per the recent Ministry of Health direction, consenting residents in remaining retirement homes, and consenting residents in high-risk senior congregate settings.
In addition, The Grey Bruce Health Unit’s Vaccine Team has completed initial COVID-19 vaccine clinics and has scheduled a second round of COVID-19 vaccine clinics (at least 28 days apart) in all schools in Grey and Bruce for all eligible and consenting staff and students. Uptake, to date, has been noted in students who may not have had an opportunity to receive the vaccine elsewhere – due to transportation issues, parental concerns and access.
These milestones would not have been possible without the collaboration of the local school boards and Long-Term Care and Retirement Homes. In addition, the efforts of the residents of Grey and Bruce to get their vaccine has allowed these milestones to be possible.
