Halton Region Ramping up COVID19 Vaccination Clinics

By: Laura Steiner
Halton Region is preparing for the next phase of COVID-19 vaccination.  Four initial clinics in each of Halton’s municipalities will be open for residents in prioritized populations once supply becomes available.
“Like other regions, our ability to get these sites operational is dependent on supply from the Federal Government,” Halton Region said.  The federal government distributes vaccines to the province, who in turn will distribute to the 34 Public Health Units (PHU’s)
Phase one of vaccine rollout include front-line workers in hospitals, and Long Term Care (LTC) homes as well as paramedics. The four locations are as follows:

  1. Gellert Community Centre, 10241 Eighth Line, Georgetown
  2. St. Volodymyr Cultural Centre, 1280 Dundas Street West, Oakville
  3. Compass Point Bible Church, 1500 Kerns Road, Burlington
  4. Milton Centre for the Arts, 1010 Main Street East, Milton

“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 vaccines on halton.ca.” Halton Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) Dr. Hamidah Meghani.  The clinics will open first to adults 80 years of age and older.  For more information on the vaccines visit the Region of Halton’s official website.
