Peel’s newest COVID-19 vaccination clinic opens in Brampton
Brampton, ON. (April 5, 2021) – The Region of Peel is opening the newest COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in Brampton tomorrow (Tuesday, April 6) at the Chris Gibson Recreation Centre at 125 McLaughlin Road in Brampton. This brings the number of community clinics in Peel to seven.
Residents can find more information and book appointments at all vaccination locations in Peel. Appointment availability will be updated as vaccine supply becomes available at each clinic location.
Currently, residents who are in priority populations groups, Indigenous adults, and adults over 60 years of age can book at all Peel clinics.
Select pharmacies in Peel are also offering AstraZeneca vaccine to individuals aged 55 and over.
Check to see what pharmacies in Peel are providing the vaccine. Additional pharmacies will continue to join and increase access points for vaccine across the province.
Peel's Community Mass Vaccination Plan follows the Ontario government's three-phase approach and uses a made-in-Peel prioritization framework to bring the needs of those most at risk to the forefront. The Plan is designed for flexibility and scalability.
In February 2021, the first community clinics were launched at 7120 Hurontario Street in Mississauga and 10 Peel Centre Drive in Brampton for healthcare workers. With the lessons learned from these clinics, three additional community clinics in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga were launched in February and April 2021.
