A youth only COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic is scheduled for Friday, July 2, at the Hanover P&H Centre Hockey Hub.

The clinic will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Grey Bruce Health Unit said vaccines are by appointment only. The clinic is live on the provincial booking site but only individuals 12-17 years can see this clinic.

This is a first dose vaccine clinic and youth are eligible to get their second dose 56 days after their first dose.

Public health officials explained in a release that “youth were the last age group to get vaccine eligibility and that puts them, as a group, behind other age categories in vaccine coverage rates. A clinic specific for their age group will provide a catch-up.

The goal is to have all youth in Grey Bruce fully vaccinated, with two doses, in time for return to school in September.”
