Ford, Crombie mark opening of new mass vaccination clinic

Mass vaccination clinic Representatives from the local and provincial government, including Premier Doug Ford and Mayor Bonnie Crombie, were on-hand Monday to mark the opening of a new mass vaccination clinic at the University of Toronto’s Mississauga Campus (UTM).

The new clinic, a partnership between Trillium, UTM and Peel Public Health, will allow frontline workers to administer up to 2,000 vaccinations to residents per day, with plans to increase that amount to 4,000 per day based on supply of the vaccine and public health direction.

Ford, Crombie, Peel Public Health representative Dr. Lawrence Loh and Minister of Health Christine Elliott were all present to inaugurate the opening of the clinic, which is located in UTM’s Recreation, Athletics and Wellness Centre (RAWC) building and will operate from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., seven days a week.

“(This clinic) is an incredible example of our partners working together to support the community at a critical time,” said Crombie. “It is so important that over the coming weeks we continue to ramp up vaccinations in order to protect our elderly residents, our schools, our hospitals and other vulnerable residents.”

COVID-19 vaccines will be administered to priority groups by scheduled appointment only. No walk-in spots will be available. Reservations for the clinic can be made by visiting the Trillium website at trilliumhealthpartners.ca/covid-19/A/vaccine.html.
