COVID-19 Vaccinations

Vaccination will support a safe return to school. With the circulating Delta virus in Grey Bruce, we need to aim for high coverage amongst youth aged 12-17 and school staff. Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to stay protected and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Youth and school staff who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine are strongly encouraged to visit any vaccine clinic as soon as possible!

School vaccine clinics are being offered to make getting a vaccine more convenient for youth. Parents/caregivers can review the following vaccine information, discuss the vaccine with their child(ren), and choose whether to complete the consent form before clinics are held at their school:
