Burlington mayor says city’s vaccine rollout going ‘very well’

Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward recently stated that the city’s vaccine rollout is going “very well.”

In an exclusive interview with Khaled Iwamura from inhalton.com, Meed Ward stated that she has heard “nothing but good things” from people who have booked their appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The online system is working very well,” said Meed Ward. “People feel safe and comfortable. There’s no waiting in line and there’s no crowding.”

Meed Ward added that the age groups are coming down “quite rapidly” and that the vaccine rollout will depend on supply.

“As soon as we get more supply, we will keep immunizing and adding more groups to the eligibility list.”

As of Friday, Mar. 26, Halton residents 70 years and older (born in or before 1951) will be eligible to book an appointment to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

Clinic locations in Halton include Gellert Community Centre, located at 10241 Eighth Line in Georgetown, St. Volodymyr Cultural Centre, located at 1280 Dundas Street West in Oakville, Compass Point Bible Church, located at 1500 Kerns Road in Burlington and Milton Centre for the Arts, located at 1010 Main Street East in Milton.

Residents are reminded that there will be no walk-in appointments and are asked not to call the clinics directly.

Appointments can be made online or by calling 311 and will be available during the months of March and April.
