*******************

If you received your first dose of vaccine (Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Moderna) at one of our clinics in Collingwood or Wasaga Beach, we have received a supply of Moderna vaccine that we are able to offer for your second dose. .

If you would like more information on mixing vaccines, please click here. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) has confirmed that a mixed immunization schedule can be completed safely and is effective. To ensure maximum protection against COVID-19 and the Delta variant, Ontarians are encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible and receive their second dose within the recommended interval with the vaccine available to them. These clinics offer Moderna as a second dose.

If you think you have enough information and would like to book your second dose of Moderna vaccine at one of our drive-thru locations, click here to book now through the South Ontario Health Team Georgian Bay if you meet the following criteria:

1. You are a resident of Southern Georgian Bay
2. You received your first dose of Pfizer or Moderna at least 28 days after the date of the appointment OR you received your first dose of AstraZeneca at least eight weeks after the date of the appointment

There are appointments available July 2 and 7 at the Collingwood Legion and July 14 at the Wasaga Beach RecPlex.

If the reservation is full and you cannot make an appointment at this time, please continue to check our website or add yourself to our waiting list, as we will continue to add appointments based on vaccine demand and supply.

Please do not call your family doctor’s office or the Georgian Bay Family Health Team.

If you are making the reservation and attending our driving clinics, we ask everyone to arrive as close to their appointment time as possible (neither early nor late) to avoid traffic jams. Wear loose clothing.

You will be refused if you do not meet the eligibility criteria.

If you change an appointment for vaccines, please make sure to cancel your original appointment using your original booking method. This will ensure that no appointments are blocked for other eligible patients.

These appointments are for residents of Southern Georgian Bay who meet the above eligibility criteria. If you need to make your second appointment and you are not a resident of South Georgian Bay, please contact the location where you received your first dose.
