Is transportation available to get to clinics?

  • Call 211 and ask about transportation.
  • GTR Transportation: https://bit.ly/2SvZcZ8 for routes and fares.
  • Do you have a physical disability or mobility issue and no access to safe transportation during COVID-19? The Accessible Drive to Vaccines Program provides door-to-door rides to vaccination sites for people with disabilities, including seniors with mobility issues, who face challenges accessing safe transportation. For more information or to Request a Ride.

Who is eligible for a third dose?

On August 17, 2021, the province announced updates to many vaccine strategies, including Ontario’s Updated COVID-19 Vaccination Eligibility (third dose and more to select qualifying groups) – Public Health will not be administering these vaccines. Your physician or specialist will be in touch to schedule the vaccine. Do not call to try to get one.  Proof of qualification will be required to get this 3rd dose.

Eligible groups are:

  • Transplant recipients (including solid organ transplant and hematopoietic stem cell transplants)
  • Patients with hematological cancers (examples include lymphoma, myeloma, leukemia) on active treatment (chemotherapy, targeted therapies, immunotherapy) for malignant hematologic disorders
  • Recipients of an anti-CD20 agent (e.g. rituximab, ocrelizumab, ofatumumab)
  • Residents of high-risk congregate settings including long-term care homes, higher-risk licensed retirement homes and First Nations elder care lodges

Do I still have to practice public health measures like wearing a mask and physical distancing after I’m vaccinated?

Yes. Until a vaccine is widely available and a large percentage of the population becomes immune to COVID-19, we all have to continue to follow public health measures and rules for our region and continue to take everyday actions to help stop the spread of the virus. Why?

  • While the vaccine(s) offers protection against COVID-19, there is not sufficient data yet on prevention of transmission.
  • It takes time for a vaccine to develop its protective effects (i.e. a month or longer).
  • We are still experiencing high COVID-19 infection rates, which has placed intense strain on our hospitals and health systems, as well as the health care workers who have been on the front lines of this crisis for many months.
  • Not everyone will get the vaccine, meaning there will still be a risk of transmission.
  • For more information: About COVID-19 Vaccines (publichealthgreybruce.on.ca)

For these reasons it is important that everyone, including those who have been vaccinated, continue to physical distance, wear a mask when we can, and wash/sanitize our hands frequently.
