Halton Region is ready to open our vaccination clinics for prioritized populations once vaccine supplies are secured by the Federal Government.
“Halton Region staff have been working tirelessly to ensure we are prepared to vaccinate our residents, starting first with our most vulnerable populations,” said Halton Regional Chair, Gary Carr. “Like other regions, our ability to get these sites operational is dependent on supply from the Federal Government. These clinics are in addition to our mobile teams vaccinating residents in long-term care and retirement homes, Halton Healthcare’s clinic for health care workers and our ongoing preparations to eventually provide vaccine to the rest of our community. I cannot thank our Public Health, Paramedic Services, Hospital teams and staff working behind the scenes enough for their dedication to get us ready.”
Clinics are located in each municipality and have been selected based on the ability to maintain health and safety measures, accessibility and amenities.

“The preparation of these clinics is an important milestone in our work to vaccinate those most at risk of becoming very sick with COVID-19,” said Dr. Hamidah Meghani, Halton Region’s Medical Officer of Health. “I encourage everyone to get the vaccine when it is your turn, and in the meantime, prepare yourself and your family by reviewing credible information on the vaccines on halton.ca.”
Quick Clinic Facts:
- The clinics are not yet open to the general public. The clinics will first serve priority populations identified by the Province (external link), beginning with adults 80 years of age and older.
- Information on clinic openings and how to book an appointment will be available when the amount of vaccines is confirmed. The public and current priority populations will be notified through a variety of print and digital channels when the booking system is ready and more details are confirmed.
- Planning is also underway to provide additional supports such as transportation for residents who require them. More information will be provided as those details are confirmed.
