Oakville and Milton residents will be able to get their first or second doses at three new pop-up clinics this month.

The provincial government will be administering the Pfizer vaccine at the outdoor clinics.

Two of the pop-ups are in Oakville, with the first being held on Wednesday and Thursday at St. Thomas Aquinas Secondary School, located at 124 Dorval Drive.

The second Oakville clinic will be held Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25 at Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School, located at 2420 Sixth Line.

The Milton pop-up clinic runs Saturday, July 17 and Sunday, July 18 at Craig Kielburger Secondary School, located at 1151 Ferguson Drive.

All clinics run from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and are open to those 12 years of age and over. Residents must be 12 by the date of the appointment.

Residents can book an appointment online starting Monday, by going to halton.ca/COVIDvaccines. Some walk-in appointments may be available, with the last walk-in session at 6 p.m.

You must wait 28 days before you are eligible for your second dose and have your health card or another piece of identification with your photo, name and date of birth.

The pop-up clinics are being held outside and residents are reminded to arrive 10 minutes prior (and not earlier) to your appointment for registration and to dress for the weather.

You are asked to wear a mask and maintain a two-metre physical distance from others at all times. If you require support, please only bring one other person.

As well, bring a bottle of water and make sure to eat a snack or meal before your appointment.
