If you’re a Mississauga and Brampton resident who’s eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine but hasn’t booked an appointment yet, now’s the time.
Peel Region says there are currently a number of spaces still available for those who are eligible for the vaccine.
In Peel, the vaccine is currently available to seniors 75 years or older and Indigenous residents (First Nations, Inuit, and Métis) who are 18 or older.
“Vaccine clinics across Ontario are currently experiencing high volume of demand. Booking online is the fastest way to book a vaccine appointment,” according to Peel.
Seniors can book their appointment (or have a trusted caregiver book it for them) at Peel Public Health clinics, William Osler Health System vaccine clinics, or Trillium Health Partners vaccine clinics.
When coming to the clinic, you’ll need to have:
- Proof of age (for example an Ontario health card or another form of government issued photo ID like a driver’s license, passport, status card, or valid health card from another province).
- Proof that you live in Peel (for example a government issued ID such as a driver’s license, bank statement, or utility bill).
The vaccines are administered at no cost, and appointments for the second dose will be made for you when you receive your first dose.
For more information on the vaccine and how to book your appointment, visit Peel Region’s website.
