BARRIE, ONT. – The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) and public and Catholic school boards have partnered to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to specific schools during the weeks of June 15-26.

Clinics are by appointment only and are intended for children 12 to 17 years old to receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccination.

Children or their parents can make an appointment for these locations through the provincial reservation system.

The appointments are open to all young people aged 12 and over, whether or not they attend the specific schools that organize the clinics.

Dates and locations of clinics:

  • 15 juin – Gravenhurst High School – 325 Mary St S, Gravenhurst,

When booking an appointment for the first dose, a second dose will be automatically scheduled in August to ensure students are fully immunized before returning to school in September.

Children must be 12 years of age or older by the date of their vaccination appointment.

People can continue to make appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine for children 12 to 17 years old at any community vaccination clinic or at some pharmacies.

The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine that Health Canada has authorized for use in people 12 years of age and older.
