Peel marks another vaccine milestone

As Peel Region celebrates close to 2 million doses delivered and over 79 percent of eligible residents aged 18+ receiving their first dose and 55 percent of residents aged 18+ receiving their second dose, Peel Region is making changes to aspects of the vaccination program.

As part of this approach, the International Centre mass vaccination clinic will close on July 26. All other clinics will continue to operate at this time with some adjustments based on community need. Mobile clinics and outreach efforts will continue to reach residents who have not yet accessed first doses or complete vaccination with second doses, and it is anticipated that increased focus on these efforts will ramp up soon.

This includes continued vaccination of home bound residents and pop-up clinics in the community at schools and other neighbourhood spaces. These efforts will continue to reduce barriers to vaccination in areas of lower uptake, so no one gets left behind.

All residents who are 12 years or older are encouraged to book their first dose if they haven’t received it yet. Residents are also being asked to rebook their second dose as quickly as possible if it has been 28 days since their first dose. Appointments are available, including walk-in appointments at select clinics.

Residents can book appointments through the provincial booking system or call the provincial call centre at 1-833-943- 3900, or via participating pharmacy or a primary care setting.
