Pop Up COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at The Plex

Pop Up COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at The Ple!

The Grey Bruce Health Unit is holding a pop-up drive-through (or walk-in) vaccine clinic, Friday, July 9, at The Plex, 600 Tomlinson Dr., Port Elgin. The clinic will run from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the parking lot. 

As the Delta variant cases have increased in Grey Bruce, the region has been designated as a Delta variant hot spot. Recent literature shows that the Delta variant is barely sensitive to one dose of vaccine but a second dose significantly boosts the sensitivity and vaccine effectiveness.

Data clearly indicates that areas with high vaccination rates are unlikely to see major surges in hospitalization rates from Delta. Case rates are higher among young adults who have low vaccination rates. Vaccination should provide a good protection against Delta. Most cases are in unvaccinated individuals. Washing hands frequently, watching distance (ideally 6ft), and correctly wearing a face covering protects against all forms of the COVID-19 virus including the Delta variant. Vaccine is the best long-term defense.

Everyone who is eligible is encouraged to get fully vaccinated. In addition to pop-up clinics, there are scheduled vaccine clinics in Grey Bruce every day, Monday to Friday. These mass clinics have a limited walk-in capacity, but making an appointment will ensure there will be vaccine for you. Please visit the Grey Bruce Health Unit website for clinic locations and times. Be safe; get the vax!
