The Province will be operating a Pop-up COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in Oakville this weekend, offering first doses of the Pfizer vaccine to Halton residents 12 years of age and older. Residents will be able to book appointments at this clinic through Halton’s online booking system starting today.
“I would like to thank the Province, our local School Boards and Regional staff for your hard work and collaboration to offer more vaccination options for our residents,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr. “We are making great progress on our vaccine rollout, with nearly 75 per cent of residents 12 years of age and older having received at least one dose. As we receive more supply from the Province, we will continue to open up more appointments to get everyone fully vaccinated in our community as quickly as possible.”
The pop-up clinic will take place at the following locations, dates and times:
In addition to the Pop-up clinic, Halton Region will be opening its eighth community clinic at the YMCA of Oakville, located at 410 Rebecca Street in Oakville (Google Maps link). The clinic will be open on Thursday, June 17 and residents are already able to book appointments at this location through Halton’s online booking system.
“These additional clinics are providing more options for residents to get their COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Hamidah Meghani, Halton Region Medical Officer of Health. “It is essential for everyone to get their first and second doses as soon as they can to gain protection from COVID-19 and variants of concern. The more residents that get vaccinated the closer we get to achieving community protection and getting back to normal. Let’s roll-up our sleeves Halton!”
Halton Region Public Health is reminding residents 12 years of age and older that it remains critically important for all those who have not received a first dose to get one. When eligible, residents are also encouraged to reschedule their second dose earlier to help gain protection against COVID-19 and variants of concern as soon as possible.
Residents can get their first or second doses at:
