Grey Bruce top doctor feels region is ahead of rest of province with COVID vaccines, following measures


Grey Bruce Chief Medical Officer of Health is pleased with the way residents are dealing with COVID-19 and its variants.

Dr. Ian Arra says there have been many people who have received their booster shots through the hockey hub mass vaccination clinics, and other community clinics.



Arra also wanted to clarify what he said in a delegation at Grey County Council last week.

He says if Grey Bruce was on an island away from the rest of Ontario, there would not be a lockdown here.



Arra is also cautiously optimistic about the new Pfizer drug Paxlovid that was approved by Health Canada on Monday.

He says the new medication may be utilized in many ways but wants to hear from the Province on how this drug can be used to treat COVID patients.
