Peel Public Health is excited to announce that 90% of eligible residents aged 12+ have received at least two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. This news comes on the heels of Peel’s milestone of 3 million total doses administered across all age groups, and provides a strong basis for protection against COVID-19 in our community during this time of transition.
Residents have hundreds of clinic options to get vaccinated, including:
- Large clinics in Brampton, Caledon, and Mississauga
- Mobile clinics and “vax vans” in accessible and convenient locations, such as malls, workplaces and parks (weather permitting)
- Community clinics in trusted locations, such as schools and places of worship, co-designed with community partners
- Primary care and pharmacy clinics
- In-home vaccinations for those living in long term care, retirement homes or cannot get out of their homes
Residents can get their first, second or booster dose at any Peel Clinic. New clinics are added regularly as community needs are identified and clinics are now delivering both mRNA vaccine products approved for use in Canada.
As well, this weekend, Peel will host a second special family clinic and two dedicated clinics for our Black, African and Caribbean communities. Clinic details are posted on the Region’s website
Vaccination remains the foundation for protection as we continue to face the Omicron variant, and Peel’s vaccine system continues to offer vaccines to residents at locations that best meets their needs. Peel Public Health urges all eligible residents to get their booster ahead of the province’s scheduled reopening plan.
