Brampton, ON (May 2, 2021) - As of Monday, May 3, at 8 a.m., all vaccine clinics in Peel region will accept bookings for individuals who are 18 years and older in 2021 within provincially-identified hot spot postal codes as follows:

With the expansion of the booking eligibility, more residents will be able to receive the vaccines. Appointments are available at most Peel Public Health mass vaccination clinics immediately, as of Monday. Given the interest and demand to book appointments at our clinics, residents are encouraged to book as soon as possible but be patient since, in some instances, they may not get an appointment for a few days or longer because a large group of Peel residents is now newly eligible.
The 18+ eligible group can use Ontario’s vaccine booking system (as of 8 a.m. on May 3) to find out how to schedule an appointment or can call the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line number at 1-833-943-3900.
