Add getting vaccinated to the list of things you can do at the Oakville YMCA.

On Thursday, Halton Public Health is opening its eighth community vaccination clinic at the YMCA, located on 410 Rebecca Street.

The addition of a vaccination site is a result of the significant additional supply of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine coming into the country.

The federal government will receive a total of 7.1 million doses in two shipments this week from the Massachusetts-based pharmaceutical firm.

Along with the 2.4 million doses expected to come from Pfizer and BioNTech, Canada is set to receive a whopping 9.5 million doses this week alone.

With the massive boost in supply, Halton Region has also added more appointments at the Garry Allan Learning Centre in Burlington.

Residents can book appointments now through the online booking system at halton.ca/COVIDvaccines. Those requiring assistance can also call 311.

There will be no walk-ins accepted.
