A new app aims to help people get locally relevant information fast to deal with the complexity of different groups in different places having different priorities for vaccine bookings.
The Grey Bruce COVID-19 Vaccine App is available to download from Google Plan and Apple. It was developed in partnership with Bruce Power and NPX Innovation.
The app lets you book appointments, shows an interactive map of clinics and lets you walk through the vaccine set-up by video and photos.
The app contains information about the COVID-19 vaccine and who will get vaccinated when in the Grey-Bruce Health Unit.
Dr. Ian Arra, Chief Medical Officer of Health, said the app was developed to bring all the information from the health unit website and to allow seamless booking from people’s mobile devices.
The app contains current updated information about the vaccine rollout in Grey and Bruce counties.
Bruce Power Exec. V-P James Scongack encouraged everyone to download the app and get familiar with the information “so when your turn comes, you can book your vaccination quickly and easily.”
“There’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” he said, “and we’ll get there by working together
