Getting the vaccine
We’re working with our partners to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine safely, widely, and quickly to as many residents as possible.
Vaccine appointments for 80 years and older
A limited number of appointments are currently being offered at 2 locations:
Brampton – William Osler Health System vaccine clinic
Book your appointment
Mississauga – Trillium Health Partners vaccine clinic
Pre-register for your vaccine appointment
Ontario's vaccine supply will not arrive all at once, so distribution will happen in stages. In Peel, our Community Mass Vaccination Plan provides a summary of how the vaccine will be given to residents in the coming months.
Community clinics will be one of the ways to vaccinate residents quickly and safely.
In February, the first community clinics will be launched for health care workers at:
- 7120 Hurontario Street in Mississauga
- 10 Peel Centre Drive in Brampton
Additional community clinics in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga will be launched between February and April. Locations include:
- Save Max Sports Centre (formerly Brampton Soccer Centre), 1495 Sandalwood Parkway East, Brampton
- Caledon East Community Complex, 6215 Old Church Road, Caledon East
- Chris Gibson Arena, Brampton
- International Centre, Mississauga
- Paramount Fine Foods Centre, Sportsplex C – C Gate 1, 5600 Rose Cherry Place, Mississauga
- Trillium Health Partners - University of Toronto (Mississauga) Recreation, Athletics and Wellness Centre Clinic
These clinics will first serve priority groups as identified in Ontario's directives and Peel’s own prioritization framework to serve the broader community as vaccine supply becomes more readily available.
We continue to work with our municipal partners and local community businesses to secure more clinic locations in communities throughout Peel. Planning is underway for other types of clinics such as drive-thru and mobile clinics as well as other sites in the community. We'll also work with primary care providers and pharmacies for vaccine delivery.
As the clinics prepare to open, we'll provide information about:
- Clinic hours.
- How to book appointments.
- What you need to do to prepare for your appointment.
