Back-to-School Vaccine Clinics

Vaccine should be top of the to-do list in getting ready for back-to-school in September, says the Grey-Bruce Health Unit.

Vaccination remains the most effective way to prevent severe illness and complications from COVID-19 and its variants. All students age 12 and older are urged to get both first and second doses of the vaccine prior to returning to school in person in September. 

To provide easy access to vaccines, mobile pop-up clinics will take place in high schools across Grey Bruce before the beginning of the school year. Clinics are drive-in, walk-in, bike-in; no appointment is needed. These clinics are geared towards students and their families, but are open to all.

  • Friday August 20, 4:00 – 7:00pm – Walkerton District Community School Parking Lot (Walkerton)
