Halton Region is ready to open our vaccination clinics for prioritized populations once vaccine supplies are secured by the Federal Government.

“Halton Region staff have been working tirelessly to ensure we are prepared to vaccinate our residents, starting first with our most vulnerable populations,” said Halton Regional Chair, Gary Carr.

“Like other regions, our ability to get these sites operational is dependent on supply from the Federal Government. These clinics are in addition to our mobile teams vaccinating residents in long-term care and retirement homes, Halton Healthcare’s clinic for health care workers and our ongoing preparations to eventually provide vaccine to the rest of our community.

I cannot thank our Public Health, Paramedic Services, Hospital teams and staff working behind the scenes enough for their dedication to get us ready.”

Clinics are located in each municipality and have been selected based on the ability to maintain health and safety measures, accessibility and amenities.

  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

These are initial locations and other clinics may be identified as required.

“The preparation of these clinics is an important milestone in our work to vaccinate those most at risk of becoming very sick with COVID-19,” said Dr. Hamidah Meghani, Halton Region’s Medical Officer of Health. “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 the vaccines on”

Quick Clinic Facts:

  • The clinics are not yet open to the general public. The clinics will first serve priority populations identified by the Province, beginning with adults 80 years of age and older.
  • Information on clinic openings and how to book an appointment will be available when the amount of vaccines is confirmed. The public and current priority populations will be notified through a variety of print and digital channels when the booking system is ready and more details are confirmed.
  • Planning is also underway to provide additional supports such as transportation for residents who require them. More information will be provided as those details are confirmed.

The Gazette will provide details on just where these places are later in the week

    Quite frankly, my MAJOR and immediate concern is not the actual distribution locations BUT when will the vaccine arrive,

    This delivery timetable gets more nebulous by the day as the PM plays the fiddle to the tune of his incompetence.

    “Canada’s inoculation drive began 14 December, and the country has so far given just over 1.39 million doses. It currently stands at 20 in global rankings of doses per 100 people”.

    My confidence in Trudeau’s ability to handle the pandemic crisis was not helped when “early last year, Canada also signed an agreement with Chinese vaccine-maker CanSino for a vaccine trial, but that deal fell apart. CanSino had initially agreed to bring its vaccine candidate to Canada for testing! – now, would you be the guinea pig for an untested Chinese vaccine?- I would only consider it if Trudeau, Ford and their colleagues had first dibs!

    Now we come to the BOTTOM LINE – according to the PM Pfizer has promised to ship four million doses and Moderna has promised another two million to Canada by the end of the first quarter of 2021 (end of March), meaning a combined total of six million doses by March 31.

    I sincerely hope so, but we will see and we will judge!

    While it is alleged that the “faceless bureaucrat” who wants to shut down the pier at the Lift Briidge enjoys four raw lemons each day, there is no truth to the rumour that this person chose Compass Point as the vaccination centre, but it may have been a relative…..

    Great news. My 90 yr old father will be first in line. Please keep us apprised of how to register

  • Jane

    Thank you for clearly stating in your article why Compass Point Bible Church was selected as our first inoculation centre, as well that transportation and additional locations are being considered.

    Re: the Burlington location… will seniors over eighty who do not drive, find their way to this out of the way location? Most of our senior population live south of the QEW.

    Much as I can understand the difficulty of locating these clinics, Kerns Road is hardly central to the vast bulk of the Burlington population. I hope more sites are under consideration.
