The Region of Peel will be supporting truck drivers to get vaccinated through a weekend Transportation Clinic on July 17 and July 18 at the International Centre, (6900 Airport Rd.) between 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
(See details for this clinic in Polish and Punjab at links here Transportation Weekend Booking Message-Polish_public and here Transportation Weekend Booking Message-Punjabi_public).
Appointments can be booked through the Peel website or by calling the Region of Peel at 905-791-5202, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week.
Health officials encourage participants to make an appointment as there will be a limited number of walk-in spots available for first doses.
“We are hoping that anyone who has not yet been able to receive their first or second dose will take this opportunity to get vaccinated. We cannot stress enough the importance of getting vaccinated to protect yourselves and your families from COVID-19,” officials said.
As well, the region is also accepting other transportation workers at the International Centre for vaccinations on the same dates of July 17 and July 18. The clinic will be open to employees in the trucking, taxi, and bus industries, courier services, as well as UBER drivers who are eligible for their first and second doses of the vaccine.
