If you’ve booked an appointment at a vaccine clinic in Peel, review these details to help you prepare. An Ontario health card or an immunization record are not required to get the vaccine.
To learn what happens at your appointment, take a tour of a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Peel.
Before your appointment
On your appointment day, be sure to wear a short-sleeved shirt or a shirt with sleeves that are easy to roll up. You'll need to wear a mask and maintain physical distance from others at the clinic.
You'll need to self-screen for symptoms of COVID-19 before entering the clinic. Instructions are provided at the clinic entrance.
When arriving at the clinic
To avoid line-ups outside the clinic you should arrive 10 minutes before the start of your appointment. Wheelchairs are available at each clinic. You can ask security for assistance.
Adults 65 years or older and people of any age who have transportation barriers can use TransHelp, free of charge, to get to their vaccine appointment. You must be eligible to receive the vaccine.
You don't need to be a TransHelp client to use this service.
Call 905-791-1015 at least 48 hours before your appointment to make your booking.
Mississauga residents with a vaccine appointment at Paramount Fine Foods Centre Sportsplex (5500 Rose Cherry Place) can take the MiWay non-stop Paramount shuttle from the City Centre Transit Terminal.
The Paramount clinic shuttle will run every 35-42 minutes between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., 7 days a week.
On Saturday, May 8 and Sunday, May 9, the Paramount shuttle will follow an updated schedule, as the clinic will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
This 3-week pilot project has been extended until May 30.
Full MiWay transit fare is required and residents are reminded that COVID-19 vaccine clinics are by appointment only.
Visit Paramount Vaccine Clinic Shuttle for shuttle schedule information.
If you have not completed the COVID-19 screening before coming to the clinic you will complete it before starting your appointment.
You'll need to wait in the clinic for at least 15 minutes after you receive the vaccine to ensure you are feeling well.
A vaccination record and an after-care information sheet will be sent home with you. Before you leave the clinic, staff will make an appointment for your second dose of the vaccine.
The health care professional who vaccinates you will use personal protective equipment to get close to you for your vaccination.
Interpreter services are available on site if you do not speak English.
If needed to ensure your wellbeing, you can bring someone with you to your appointment.
Caregivers can go with individuals who require accommodations as outlined in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), or the individual requires support for cognitive, communication, mobility, emotional or other care needs.
They will also be screened for COVID-19 and will need to wear a mask at all times in the clinic.
It's important to try and keep your appointment. Cancelling your appointment could result in a vaccine being wasted and someone else missing their opportunity to be vaccinated.
However, if you're feeling unwell on your appointment day, stay home, cancel your appointment, and book for another time.
The following clinics are now open for priority groups.
