Here's a list of COVID-19 vaccine clinics near you in Simcoe Muskoka

Schools are back in session, and many are lining up for their COVID-19 vaccine across the region.

Starting Sept. 22, the province will require residents to show proof of their vaccine status to access certain indoor businesses.

A complete list of what will and won't be accessible without a vaccine certificate is available here.

The RVH Sperling Drive immunization clinic reported a significant increase in numbers wanting their first doses following the vaccine certificate announcement.

According to the health unit, as of Friday, 72 per cent of eligible residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

"The rate of COVID-19 infection among unvaccinated individuals in Simcoe Muskoka is 13 times higher than it is for fully vaccinated individuals," the health unit reports.
