From after-hours clinics, family-focused events and a booster blitz, Peel Public Health is aiming to vaccinate more residents in Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon as the province prepares to reopen next week.

PPH will have five pop-up and extended hours COVID-19 vaccination clinics throughout the region of Peel over the next month.


Family Clinics:

Between 1:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Sunday and Monday (Jan.30 and 31), PPH is hosting a family-focused clinic in Mississauga at the Region of Peel offices located at 7120 Hurontario Street.

The family clinic will offer four-for-one vaccine jabs, with PPH allowing up to four parents, caregivers or guardians to drop in for a booster shot when booking an appointment for one child between the ages of 5 and 11.

PPH said its last family-focused clinic in Brampton was so well-attended that decided to host another one; this time in Mississauga.

18+ Booster Clinics:

Also on Sunday and Monday, PPH is running two pop-up clinics in Mississauga and Brampton for adults over 18 years old who haven’t recieved their COVID-19 booster shots.

  • Mississauga – Sheridan Centre location (2225 Erin Mills Pkwy) between 1:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  
  • Brampton – Save Max Sports Centre (1495 Sandalwood Pkwy E.) between 1 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Doses After Dark:

Starting in February, PPH will be running after-hours clinics with a special focus on vaccinating resident those who are unable to book appointments during regular clinic hours.

The extended clinic hours will offer eligible residents the flexibility to get their booster dose, as well as their first and second doses.

  • Feb. 5, 1:00 p.m. until midnight at the Save Max Sports Centre in Brampton (1495 Sandalwood Pkwy E.)  
  • Feb. 12, 1:00 p.m. until midnight at the Rockwood Mall Clinic in Mississauga (4141 Dixie Rd. )

Appointments for the Doses After Dark clinics are available through the provincial vaccine booking portal.

PPH said late-hour clinics last year were especially busy and advised late-night appointments will go quickly.

Earlier this week, PPH said it reached its goal of vaccinating 90 per cent of eligible Peel residents.

The milestone was just reached in the last several days and it comes on the heels of another important number: three million total doses have been administered across all age groups in Mississauga and Brampton.
