The percentage of vaccinated residents in Mississauga and Brampton is steadily rising, nearly reaching 90% as of Nov. 12.
Peel reports that 89.1% of Peel residents aged 12 and older have now gotten at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while 84.9% have received both doses.
The percentages are slightly higher for residents 18 and older: 89.2% have received one dose and 85.2% have received both.
2,535,164 vaccine doses have been administered in the region overall (including 15,047 administered in the last week).
As of Nov. 12, 1,321,835 Peel residents have initiated vaccination and 1,200,785 are fully vaccinated.
While the majority of residents are vaccinated, Mississauga mayor Bonnie Crombie and Peel’s top medical official Dr. Lawrence Loh applauded Ontario’s decision to pause its reopening plan due to a slight increase in COVID-19 case counts.
Loh said even though Peel hasn’t yet seen the same rise in cases as other parts of Ontario the past week, a pause in reopening plans is welcome.
He added he’s expecting to see case counts rise in Mississauga and Brampton at some point, especially as more people gather indoors during colder months.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
