  • Those with highest-risk health conditions, including:
    • Solid organ or hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients
    • Individuals on stable, active treatment for malignant hematologic disorders or a nonhematologic malignant solid tumor

  • Any individual who received an AstraZeneca dose more than 8 weeks ago, and would like a 2nd dose of either AZ or the mRNA vaccines

Next Priority Group:

How Does Ontario’s “First-Dose” Strategy Save Lives?

Based on the recommendations from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) and top doctors from the province, Ontario is currently spacing out doses approximately 16 weeks apart.

This will be the best way to protect our community and engage in a safe re-opening. Ensuring a moderate level of protection across the entire population will ensure reduced risks of mortality and hospitalization across all age groups, and will also reduce community transmission.

As supply increases, our province will continue to accelerate the second doses for our most vulnerable groups.

Who is Currently Eligible for a First Dose in Peel?

Currently, all individuals who work, live, or go to school in Peel who are 12 and over are eligible. You must be 12 at the time of vaccination.

Under the Health Care Consent Act of 1996, children do not require parent or guardian approval to receive the vaccine so long as the child is able to provide informed consent (i.e. understands the benefit and risks of the vaccine, why they are receiving it, etc.).

Assessment Centres:

There are a number of different COVID-19 assessment centres across Peel Region, each with their own different testing criteria and appointment scheduling processes.

Due to prioritizing resources for those most vulnerable due to COVID, below are the following groups currently eligible for a test:

  • People currently experiencing symptoms, have been exposed to a COVID-positive person, or received an exposure notification on the COVID Alert app
  • Groups identified by Peel Region include, but are not limited to:
    • Workers or visitors in long-term care homes, workers at retirement homes, or residents or workers of congregate settings (i.e. homeless shelters, group homes)
    • Farm workers
    • Indigenous peoples
    • International students who have passed their 14-day quarantine
    • Individuals who need a test before a scheduled surgery in a region with high community transmission

Tests are currently being administered at the following locations in our riding (most of which are appointment only):

  • For those with symptoms, exposure, or are in the priority groups:
    • 600 Matheson Blvd West – Dynacare, L5R4C1, Mississauga, ON

What to bring?

  • Your Ontario health (OHIP) card
  • Face covering or mask

Isolation Centres:

In order to prevent community spread, our government has invested up to $42M under the High Priority Communities Strategy. Among other items, this money has been used to fund isolation centres in targeted areas across Ontario, aimed at individuals who cannot self-isolate properly because they live in a family environment.

Multiple centres have been opened in the Peel Region, including one in Malton, as our community is one of the hardest-hit neighbourhoods by COVID-19.

These facilities are free and open to all residents, and provide daily meals, security, transportation to and from home, as well as links to health and social services. OHIP health cards are not required, and these centres can handle large families as well.

Who is Eligible?

  • People who have tested positive
  • People who have symptoms for the virus
  • People who have come into close contact with someone who meets either of the previous two conditions.
  • People returning from abroad (usually due to emergency travel) and need to self-isolate for 14 days.

For more information on the program, please call Peel Region Human Services at 905-281-1269 or visit peelregion.ca/coronavirus/self-isolation/#home.
