Peel expanding vaccine clinic network to provide 200,000 doses a month as eligibility increases

Brampton, ON. (October 14, 2021) – As vaccine eligibility continues to expand, Peel is growing its vaccine system to deliver at least 200,000 doses to residents every month by this December.

Priority work continues to focus on reaching the provincially defined target of 90% two-dose coverage by supporting those who need first and second doses.

Peel’s expansion plan also includes offering vaccine for children aged 5-11 as early as the beginning of November, pending approval and supply from provincial and federal partners. Booster and third doses continue to be offered by referral, in line with provincial direction.

Peel’s plan builds on the success of its existing community-based approach. Between Sept 20 and Oct 4, this approach helped deliver 20,000 first doses among those 12+ across Peel.

Through the fall and into winter, residents will have hundreds of locations to get the vaccination they need. Vaccinations will be delivered through:

Residents can get their first or second dose at any of Peel clinics. New locations are added regularly as community needs are identified.

Peel’s vaccination approach, which delivers vaccines across multiple channels and includes clinics co-designed with community partners, makes vaccine available in hundreds of locations across the community. Expanding our clinic network to deliver at least 200,000 doses every month, and more if needed, will help ensure increased protection for residents and the community and that Peel is prepared for any expanded eligibility on pediatric and booster doses. Vaccination remains our surest and fastest way to protect our community and exit the acute phase of the pandemic.

Dr. Lawrence Loh, Medical Officer of Health, Region of Peel.
