Doses after Dark returns with extended hours in Brampton and Mississauga
Brampton, ON. (February 1 , 2022) – Peel Public Health is excited to announce the return of Doses after Dark, a COVID-19 vaccine clinic that increases access to Peel residents who are unable to get vaccinated during regular clinic hours.
The extended clinic hours will offer all eligible residents the flexibility to get their booster dose (or their first and second doses) during hours that fit their schedule. No appointment needed - residents can walk in to get their choice of vaccine for their first, second or booster dose. As well, the clinics will provide first and second doses to children five to 11 years old.
- February 5th, 2022, 1 p.m. until midnight. Save Max Sports Centre, 1495 Sandalwood Pkwy E.
- February 12th, 2022, 1 p.m. until midnight. Rockwood Mall Clinic, 4141 Dixie Rd.
If preferred, residents can also book an appointment through the Provincial booking site to ensure they get a spot. Our special late-hour clinics hosted last year for doses 1 and 2 were especially busy, so appointments will go quickly. We're expecting special guests, giveaways, and a fun and festive environment.
Media are invited to attend both clinics where Dr. Lawrence Loh, Peel's Chief Medical Officer of Health, and Paul Sharma, Peel's Director of Public Health Emergencies, will attend and be available for comment at specified hours. Media may also have limited access inside the clinics for B-roll, as well as footage where staff and public are amenable.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to secure an interview time, please email Peel Public Health to confirm attendance and to schedule an interview.
Vaccination remains the cornerstone of protection for our residents against severe outcomes related to COVID-19. With our community starting to reopen as the Omicron wave resolves, it's critical for everyone who is eligible to get their best protection: two doses and a booster. We recognize that many Peel residents work in jobs where traditional clinic hours don't align with their personal schedules; Doses after Dark aims to address this situation by extending hours to make it easier to get protected. I encourage all eligible residents to get vaccinated and boosted as quickly as possible.
