Our plan for community vaccination
We’re working with our partners to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine safely, widely, and quickly to as many residents as possible.
Together with the health system and our community partners we're preparing for a mass roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Peel's Community Mass Vaccination Plan (MVP) was submitted to the Ministry of Health on January 31, 2021. It's a local, targeted vaccination plan which considers unique features of Peel.
The Plan's overview provides a summary of how the vaccine will be given to residents in the coming months. Our plan follows Ontario's 3-phase approach but also ensures those most at risk in Peel are at the forefront.
Phase 1 vaccinations to date
We're working with system partners to complete vaccination of phase 1 priority groups as directed by the Ontario government. This includes long term care home staff and residents, hospital workers, essential caregivers and other employees of congregate living settings that provide care for seniors.
As of February 2, with the help of our system partners, over 33,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered across Peel Region.
Community clinics will be one of the ways to vaccinate residents quickly and safely. These clinics will begin in February and will be phased in across Peel.
Our goal is to vaccinate thousands of people each day, as supplies allow, over as many hours as possible.
Additional community clinics will be set up once the vaccine becomes readily available.
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.

The importance of partnerships
Peel's Community Mass Vaccination Plan is being developed in consultation with health care system and community partners including local hospitals, long term care and retirement homes, Ontario Health Teams, primary care partners, pharmacies and others. These partnerships are expected to grow over time.
