Vaccination clinic for MiWay and essential City of Mississauga employees launching next week
Published May 14, 2021 at 6:16 pm
Essential employees who work for MiWay (Mississauga’s public transit operator) or the City of Mississauga will be able to access a special vaccination clinic next week.
A city spokesperson recently confirmed that the city is hosting a mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic for MiWay Transit staff and other essential city employees at the Central Parkway Transit Campus during the week of May 17.
The clinic will be operated in partnership with the province and Region of Peel.
The clinic will not be open to members of the public and only MiWay or other essential city employees can attend.
“Transit was selected for this type of vaccine clinic by the province in light of the large number of staff identified within the Division who are essential workers that cannot work from home and who are identified under the vaccine priority group 2 that is now eligible for vaccination,” a city spokesperson said in an email to insauga.com.
As of now, anyone who is 18 years of age who is a resident of Peel (Brampton, Mississauga or Caledon) can book a vaccination appointment at a mass vaccination clinic run by the region, Trillium Health Partners or William Osler Health System.
Residents should also note that Peel’s first marathon vaccination clinic, Doses After Dark, is running this weekend. The clinic, open to anyone 18 and older who lives or works in Brampton, Mississauga or Caledon, will run for 32 straight hours, beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 15, and lasting until 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The Region of Peel is promising fun surprises, giveaways and special guests for the event.
You can book your appointment here and select The International Centre location when securing your spot.
The clinic is for first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine only and anyone who attends will need to bring their health card.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
