Halton Region Public Health is encouraging residents to complete both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine this summer in order to gain full protection against the virus and help prevent a fourth wave in the fall.

We are making great progress with our vaccine rollout, with 81 per cent of residents with one dose and 60 per cent of residents fully vaccinated,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr.

“With a more steady and predictable supply of vaccine from the Federal and Provincial governments, there are many options to get the COVID-19 vaccine in Halton and make it a two-dose summer.”

Walk-in vaccinations are now available for individuals 18 years of age and older at Gary Allan Learning Centre clinic located at 3250 New Street in Burlington daily from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Additionally, appointments can be booked online for the St. Francis Xavier Secondary School clinic in Milton, other community clinics, at select primary care offices or pharmacies in Halton.

All residents are eligible to receive a second dose of the vaccine after a minimum of 28 days. Anyone who has appointments booked in September and October is urged to reschedule to an earlier date as soon as possible.
