Region of Peel Expands Hours and Makes Improvements at COVID Vaccination Sites
Increased hours and efficiencies offer flexibility and additional appointments
Brampton, ON. (April 23, 2021) – Effective May 1 and May 8, 2 community COVID vaccination clinics will be open for additional hours each day, resulting in an increase of 750 appointments per day.
As of May 1, the clinic location at the Save Max Sports Centre in Brampton will now be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. This location had previously been open from 1 to 8 p.m.
As of May 8, the clinic location at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre in Mississauga will now be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. This location had previously been open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Operating hours have been increased in response to constant high demand for appointments from residents. Appointment availability will be dependent on vaccine supply.
The vaccination clinic in Caledon East will undergo an expansion in early May, allowing for an increase of 650 appointments per day at the Caledon East Community Complex.
Additionally, the clinic at 7120 Hurontario Street has been reconfigured to allow for an improved flow through the facility. Changes to clinics will continue to occur in order to better serve residents of Peel. As reduced wait times and better client experiences can be realized, elements of the improvements may be expanded to other clinic sites.
11 community vaccination sites are currently operational throughout Brampton, Caledon, and Mississauga, in partnership with William Osler Health Services and Trillium Health Partners.
144 pharmacies across Peel are offering vaccinations for adults over 40.
The longer operating hours at Save Max Sports Centre and at Paramount Fine Foods Centre will allow more flexibility for people who prefer off-peak appointments, or who need to book appointments before or after work. Also, optimizing our existing clinics will help increase capacity and efficiency. As we see room for improvement, we will make changes to help accelerate the number of people in Peel who can get their vaccination.
