COVID-19 Vaccination Sites Selected By Halton Region
The Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board is pleased to learn that Halton Region has readied vaccination clinics for priority populations in preparation to vaccinate residents, pending more COVID-19 vaccine supply.
One clinic in each municipality was selected based on the ability to maintain health and safety measures, accessibility and amenities. 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. The Region’s ability to get these sites operational is dependent on supply from the Federal Government.
The locations where residents of Oakville and Milton will be able to receive vaccinations once they become available are as follows:
In Oakville, the site is St. Volodymyr Cultural Centre. This is an initial location and other clinics may be identified as required.
In Milton, the FirstOntario Arts Centre is selected as the location for the COVID-19 vaccination clinic.
Residents are encouraged to stay up-to-date about information on when the clinics will begin and about the local COVID-19 Vaccination Program in Halton, by visiting Halton Region’s website.
In Canada, the Federal Government is responsible for approving, acquiring and distributing vaccines to the provinces and territories. The Provincial Government determines where the doses will go, who will receive it and when. In December, the Government of Ontario established a three-phase implementation plan to receive, store and distribute COVID-19 vaccines across the province.
Halton Region Public Health is responsible for the distribution and administration of the vaccines at a regional level, based on the province’s implementation plan.
