Based on an expected increase in vaccine supply, on Monday, July 26, Halton Region will be opening its ninth community clinic at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Secondary School, located at 1145 Bronte Street S. in Milton (external link). This clinic will offer first and second doses to residents 12 years of age and older. Halton will also be increasing capacity at several existing clinics offering more opportunities for individuals to book their first dose appointment or to rebook their second dose at an earlier interval. Residents can now easily book appointments through Halton’s online booking system.
“We are pleased to offer more convenient options for our residents to get their first and second COVID-19 doses,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr. “We are making great progress on our vaccine rollout, with 80 per cent of residents 12 years of age and older having received at least one dose and 51 per cent fully vaccinated. As we receive more supply from the Province, we will continue to open up more appointments to get everyone in our community fully vaccinated as quickly as possible.”
In addition to new appointments available at the Region’s community clinics, the Province will be operating three pop-up COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics in Milton and Oakville this month. These clinics will offer first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine to Halton residents 12 years of age and older. Residents are able to book appointments at these clinics through Halton’s online booking system.
The Provincial Pop-up clinics will take place at the following locations, dates and times:
- St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School, 124 Dorval Drive, Oakville (Google Map link)
- Wednesday, July 14 & Thursday July 15, from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
- Craig Kielburger Secondary School, 1151 Ferguson Drive, Milton (Google Map link)
- Saturday, July 17 & Sunday, July 18, from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
- Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School, 2420 Sixth Line, Oakville (Google Map link)
- Saturday, July 24 & Sunday, July 25 from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Residents who received Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca as their first dose can book an appointment to receive the Pfizer vaccine for their second dose at these Provincial Pop-up clinics, provided they meet the minimum dose interval requirement.
“Our top priority is to get as many people in our community vaccinated as quickly as possible, and these additional clinics will help more residents get their COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Hamidah Meghani, Halton Region Medical Officer of Health. “Receiving all the required doses of a COVID-19 vaccine series is a critical part of protecting you, your family and our community 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. It’s time to roll up your sleeves Halton!”
Several members of our community, including health care professionals, have shared their experiences with COVID-19 and why they chose to get vaccinated. Watch these video testimonials from members of Halton’s community.
All residents 12 years of age and older are strongly encouraged to get two doses of COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. First and second dose appointments can be booked at:
Please note: Residents do not need to book an appointment or go to the same clinic for their first and second dose appointments.
