The approval and availability of COVID-19 vaccines is an important step in our collective response to stop the spread of the virus. While it is a light at the end of the tunnel, we must keep our guards up and continue practicing all public health measures that remain in place.
This page includes information for residents on Halton’s COVID-19 Vaccine Program, including who is currently eligible, clinic information, how to book an appointment and resources to help you make an informed decision about COVID-19 vaccination.

COVID-19 Vaccination Status
Halton is currently focused on vaccinating priority populations as identified by the Province, including recent Provincial direction to accelerate vaccinations for residents in long-term care and high-risk retirement homes, second doses for prioritized healthcare workers and first doses for patient-facing healthcare workers.
- Mobile teams of Halton Region Public Health and Halton Region Paramedic Services began vaccinations for residents, staff and essential caregivers at long-term care and high-risk retirement homes on January 11, 2021.
- Halton Healthcare established a COVID-19 Vaccination Centre at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital and began vaccinating long term care and high-risk retirement home staff and prioritized healthcare workers on December 22, 2020 and essential caregivers in early January.
Halton’s COVID-19 vaccination program remains contingent on supply. As more vaccine is available, we will continue to roll out the vaccine to priority populations as quickly as possible. Starting Wednesday March 3, Halton residents who are 80 years of age or older (or someone booking on their behalf) will able to book an appointment online to be vaccinated at a Halton Region COVID-19 Vaccination Centre.
