The Region of Peel says it’s changing the hours at its mass vaccination clinics in Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon.
Effective May 1 and May 8, two community COVID vaccination clinics will be open for additional hours each day, resulting in an increase of 750 appointments per day.
As of May 1, the clinic located at the Save Max Sports Centre in Brampton will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. This location had previously been open from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
As of May 8, the clinic located at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre in Mississauga will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. This location had previously been open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Appointment availability will be dependent on vaccine supply.
The region says the vaccination clinic in Caledon East will undergo an expansion in early May, allowing for an increase of 650 appointments per day at the Caledon East Community Complex.
The region also says the clinic at 7120 Hurontario Street has been reconfigured to allow for an “improved flow through the facility.”
“The longer operating hours at Save Max Sports Centre and at Paramount Fine Foods Centre will allow more flexibility for people who prefer off-peak appointments, or who need to book appointments before or after work,” said Dr. Lawrence Loh, Medical Officer of Health, Region of Peel, in a statement.
“Also, optimizing our existing clinics will help increase capacity and efficiency. As we see room for improvement, we will make changes to help accelerate the number of people in Peel who can get their vaccination.”
Eleven community vaccination sites are currently operational throughout Caledon, Brampton and Mississauga and 144 pharmacies across the region are offering vaccinations for adults over 40.
