GNAG’s Vaccine Policy

GNAG is dedicated to serving our community, particularly those in vulnerable populations. As a result, we have been following the available data and direction regarding COVID-19 and the vaccination program with close attention. It is clear to us that the vaccination program and other measures such as the wearing of masks, frequent hand washing, and social distancing are critical to our recovery in the pandemic and a return to more fulsome operations.

As a result, clients in GNAG programs and events will be required to provide proof of full vaccination (including the completion of the two-week post vaccine waiting period) when they arrive at a GNAG in-person program and event.

Who needs to be vaccinated?

Adults: must be fully vaccinated and be ready to show proof with a QR code in order to attend GNAG programs and events.

Children: Children who are eligible for full vaccination must be fully vaccinated in order to attend any camps or programs that begin after April 1, 2022 and bring proof with a QR code.

Who is eligible for the vaccine? (it’s always best to check OPH for the most up to date info but this is what we have as of Feb 4)

  • All those born in 2016 or before.
  • All those born in 2017 will be required to be vaccinated 12 weeks after their 5th birthday.
  • Children who are currently enrolled in our 2021-22 BC and Q4 programs and are unvaccinated, may continue to attend BC and Q4.

Medical exemptions will be made on a case-by-case basis with a supporting Doctor’s note.
