Beginning today at 9 a.m., individuals aged 16 or older who live, work or attend school in Peel will be eligible to book an appointment in Peel Region.
Individuals who are aged 16-17 must book an appointment online using the Region of Peel’s booking system. If you need help booking, call the Region of Peel COVID-19 Vaccination Line at 905-791-5202, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week. Pfizer is currently the only vaccine authorized by Health Canada for use in this age group, the region said in news release issued Tuesday morning.
As per Ministry guidance, appointments will be available at all seven Peel Public Health mass vaccination clinics, as well as the mobile school clinics. Appointments will also be available to book at a William Osler Health System Vaccine Clinic in Peel.
On Monday, the province also announced that public health units may choose to provide vaccines to those aged 12 and over in clinics where the Pfizer vaccine is offered.
Further information for how Peel youth aged 12 to 15 can access COVID-19 vaccines is expected to be communicated later this week, said spokesperson Trish Krale.
Given the interest and demand to book appointments at our clinics, residents are encouraged to book as soon as possible. Generally, the fastest way to book an appointment is online, which provides real-time availability.
