Former Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion gets COVID-19 vaccine
Soon after turning 100 years old, the former Mississauga mayor has earned another distinction — being one of the few to have received her COVID-19 vaccine.
Hazel McCallion received the first dose of the vaccine on Friday (March 5), according to Trillium Health Partners.
“At 100 years of age, Mississauga’s greatest champion and THP Honorary Guardian Hazel McCallion rolled up her sleeves to receive dose one of the COVID-19 vaccine today,” THP shared on Twitter.
“Congratulations, Hazel. Moments like these remind us that hope is on the horizon.”
Mayor Bonnie Crombie also took to Twitter to congratulate Hazel:
Way to go Hazel!Happy to see her get the #COVID19 vaccine today at 100 years young! Thank you to our healthcare heroes at @THP_hospital for taking such great care of our local legend. https://t.co/glLrZjK9Sk— Bonnie Crombie (@BonnieCrombie) March 5, 2021
Hazel is expected to get her second dose of the vaccine in three to four weeks.
According to Peel Public Health, the second dose of the vaccine comes 21 or 28 days after the first, depending on whether you took the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, respectively.
