COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at U of T Mississauga
As Ontario embarks on the first phase of its COVID-19 mass vaccination program, U of T Mississauga has joined forces with Trillium Health Partners, overseen by Peel Public Health, to protect the region’s most vulnerable citizens.
U of T Mississauga, Trillium Health Partners and Peel Public Health co-host a public vaccination clinic where health-care professionals have the capacity to deliver 2,000 doses daily of the vaccine.
The initiative allows health-care officials to ramp up vaccination capacity over the coming weeks and months, as supply allows. Ultimately, the UTM site could vaccinate approximately 500,000 people.
