Moderna will be the only vaccine used until mid July in Mississauga and Brampton for adults
The Pfizer vaccine won’t be available for Mississauga and Brampton adults until mid to late July because of a slowdown in production.
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie says the Pfizer doses that remain in Peel Region are being kept for those in the 12 to 17 age bracket.
Pfizer is the only vaccine that has been deemed appropriate for young people.
The mayor told insauga.com that anyone who is scheduled for a vaccine at a public health clinic in the next month over the age of 17 will receive a shot of Moderna.
“I encourage everyone to get out and get Moderna,” said the mayor. “You need two doses to fight COVID-19. Please get it!”
