The pop-up walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Sheridan’s Davis Campus in Brampton is being extended for two more weeks.

The temporary clinic was set to wind down last week, but instead will run until March 5 to allow residents more opportunities to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

The clinic is open to walk-ins only between Feb. 23 and Feb. 26, and again between March 2 and March 5.

Doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is available to individuals aged 12 and older from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and pediatric doses of the Pfizer vaccine to children ages 5 and 11 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Families who wish to receive doses for individuals 12 and older as well as pediatric doses are asked to come to the clinic at 4:00 p.m.

The clinic is located at the M-wing on the Davis Campus and has approximately 300 doses available daily.

The Region of Peel hit a milestone last month by fully vaccinating 90 per cent of eligible residents in Mississauga and Brampton aged 12 and older. Peel Public Health also says 50 per cent of eligible Peel children aged 5-11 have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The most recent numbers from PPH show 94.1 per cent of Peel residents over 12 years old have had at least one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 91.2 per cent have received two doses as of Feb. 18.

More than 566,000 Peel residents have received a third dose. More than 90 per cent of all Peel residents over 5 years old have received at least one vaccine shot while 85.3 per cent have received two doses.

Since the summer of 2021, Sheridan says its on-campus clinics have helped administer over 35,000 vaccine doses working together with Peel Public Health, Indus Community Services, Punjabi Community Health Services, the Latin-American COVID-19 Task Force and the Government of Ontario to run a series of vaccine clinics throughout summer 2021.
