Today (March 25), Trillium Health Partners (THP) announced that Peel residents who are 70 years and older, as well as Indigenous adults (First Nations, Inuit and Metis people who are 18 years and older), are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

THP says you can book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment if you're 70 years or older (born in 1951 or earlier) and a resident of Peel (or if you live within the Trillium Health Partners catchment area, including Mississauga and Etobicoke).

"We continue to schedule appointments for those who have pre-registered in priority sequence," THP says on its website. 

As of now, Peel is still vaccinating residents included in phase 1 of the province's vaccination schedule. Those in phase 1 include long-term care and retirement home residents and workers, frontline health care workers, people over 70 years of age and Indigenous adults of all ages. Select primacy care providers in Peel are giving AstraZeneca shots to people 60 and older, but residents cannot request these limited appointments at this time. Primary care providers with vaccines are calling eligible patients to offer appointments. 

Peel is not yet included in the province's pharmacy rollout. 

As of now, residents who have received their first dose of Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca will have to wait 16 weeks for their second dose, but some exceptions apply for vulnerable residents.
