Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown steps up and gets COVID-19 vaccination
Published April 20, 2021 at 4:37 pm
Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown has been asking residents to get vaccinated when their opportunity arises.
The recent new father did exactly that himself on Tuesday morning.
Brown, who along with wife Genevieve Gualtieri recently welcomed baby daughter Savannah Francesca Brown into the family, received his first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday.
The mayor became eligible to get his vaccine dose when the province recently announced those 40-years-old or older could get vaccinated at the more than 1407 pharmacy locations across the province beginning today.
“The best vaccine to get is the first one available,” Brown said on Twitter. “Get your shot when you’re eligible to protect yourself, your family, friends and community. We need to beat this.”
Residents can get their AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccinations at any of the 61 select pharmacies across Brampton.
Those eligible can book an appointment at www.covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations.
