Osler COVID-19 vaccine clinic opens to Peel seniors 80+

William Osler Health System (Osler) is now vaccinating Peel Region residents who are 80 years of age and older or who will be turning 80 in 2021 against COVID-19.

Eligible residents are now able to book appointments by phone by calling (905) 494-2120, ext 56685 and online through Osler’s website to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.

“This is a very exciting milestone for our community and Osler is proud to play an integral role in administering the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in Peel Region,” said Kiki Ferrari, Chief Operating Officer, William Osler Health System. “Osler is working closely with our partners at Peel Public Health to support the vaccination of this priority group through Peel’s Community Mass Vaccination Plan as part of our continued efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.”

Those who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine are able to schedule an appointment at Osler’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at Chinguacousy Wellness Centre during regular hours of operation – 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily – based on availability.

Since Osler opened its COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic in December, it has administered more than 16,000 COVID-19 vaccinations, in alignment with the Ontario Government’s three-phased Vaccine Distribution Plan. Osler remains committed to sharing information with the community as more information becomes available and as more priority groups are added.

To book an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine at an Osler Vaccine Clinic, you will be asked to provide your name, date of birth, as well as your phone number and an email address. You will receive email confirmation.

You will need to take your green Ontario Health Card to your appointment if you have one or another form of government-issued identification. If your identification does not include your address, then take proof of residence, including a bill or bank statement.
