COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic Planned for all SON Members

The Nawash Health Centre, in collaboration with the Grey Bruce Public Health Unit, is holding a COVID-19 vaccination clinic for all SON members, to be held on Thursday, March 25. The clinic will be by appointment ONLY. Drop-ins will not be allowed.

The clinic will be held at the Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound, and open to all members of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, their spouses, and children 16 years and older, regardless of their place of residence. The Saugeen Ojibway Nation is the combined members of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation and the Chippewas of Saugeen First Nation. The clinics will also be open to any First Nations person in the Grey Bruce area, their spouses, and children 16 years and older.

This clinic will be able to vaccinate an additional 150 people. We hope to have a significant percentage of Indigenous people in the area vaccinated soon. Protect your community, your family, and yourself, and schedule your vaccination today. It’s free, quick, and could save a life.

Wide-spread vaccination against the COVID-19 virus is the least painful path out of the current pandemic. We cannot risk the health and lives of our relations and loved ones by letting the virus simply run its course through the community. Vaccination is also the fastest way to safely reach a point where we can begin relaxing the necessary safety protocols that have impacted our lives so heavily. With those goals in mind, we will continue to do everything we can to get the effective, life-saving COVID-19 vaccines to as many of our people as possible.
