This is in addition to vaccine administration happening through hospital sites in Peel.
Today, an initial introduction of vaccinations for residents 80+ in Peel was announced at Regional Council, with limited doses and appointments opening up soon, and more to come as vaccine availability increases.
- Information on how to book and location information will be available on the Region of Peel website and social media platforms.
