All Peel residents 18+ can book COVID-19 vaccine appointments beginning May 6

 

As of Thursday, May 6, at 8 a.m., all 11 mass vaccine clinics in Peel Region will accept bookings for individuals who live in Peel and are 18 years of age and older at the time of vaccination.

This expansion opens eligibility for 50,000 residents who do not live in hotspots and have not yet had the opportunity to be vaccinated and makes all Peel residents who are 18 years or older, eligible for vaccination.

As one of the hardest hit communities in the province, this announcement extends the vital protection provided by vaccination to all adult Peel residents.

How to Book

NEW: Residents 18-49 – non-hotspot

Residents of Peel who are aged 18-49 but do not live in a provincially-identified hotspot postal code must book an appointment online using the Region of Peel’s booking system. If you need help booking, call the Region of Peel COVID-19 Vaccination Line at 905-791-5202, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week.

The postal codes for this booking system are as follows:

  • L4V, L4Y
  • L5E, L5G, L5H, L5J
  • L7E, L7K

Residents 18+ - hotspot

As announced on Monday by the province, Peel residents 18+ and that live in provincially-identified hotspot postal codes should continue to use Ontario’s vaccine booking system or call the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900 (TTY 1-866-797-0007).

The provincial hotspot postal codes are as follows:

  • L4T, L4W, L4X, L4Z
  • L5A, L5B, L5C, L5K, L5L, L5M, L5N, L5R, L5V, L5W
  • L6P, L6R, L6S, L6T, L6V, L6W, L6X, L6Y, L6Z
  • L7A, L7C

All residents 50+

All residents who are 50+ can use Ontario’s booking system, regardless of postal code.

Given the interest and demand to book appointments at our clinics, residents are encouraged to book as soon as possible. We ask for patience in booking as given the scale of this effort, there may be wait times to access the website or call centres. Appointments may only be available on a timeline beyond the next few days as we work to provide this protection to all of our residents. In almost all cases, the fastest way to book an appointment is online, which provides real-time availability. Appointments for all Peel postal codes can also be booked at hospital run clinics in Peel.

Adults 65 years or older and people of any age who have transportation barriers can use TransHelp, free of charge, to get to their vaccine appointment. You don't need to be a TransHelp client to use this service. Call 905-791-1015 at least 48 hours before your appointment to make your booking.

Homebound residents who live in Peel and cannot physically leave their home to receive the vaccine due to medical, social, or other cognitive reasons can complete this form and they will be contacted to book an in-home appointment.

COVID-19: A great website for families and health care providers

The spread of COVID-19 over the past few weeks have taken us into uncharted territory. We haven’t faced a pandemic in our living memory, which is what makes the current situation all the more alarming.
It has become clear that
  1. the virus spreads far more insidiously than we expect, and
  2. among the cases that are severe, and lead to fatalities, families have no time to say goodbye or plan for anything once a loved one becomes serious
MIRANET has shared the following advice from a current paramedic, on dealing with the local impact of COVID-19.
1. Community members will be essential as caregivers for those infected that remain at home. Hospitals are quickly reaching capacity in Ontario.
A basic understanding of infection control will help prepare our neighbours as they become caregivers.
Dr. Lawrence Loh, Interim Medical Officer of Health at Peel Public Health indicated that masks and eye protection are required for any home caregivers. These can be made by using double layer T-shirts.
Bleach is the best cleaner: 1 part Bleach, 9 parts water in small quantities. Diluted bleach has a shelf life of a few days.
2. As patients become seriously sick, they will rapidly need to be intubated and ventilated. Visitors are not allowed in the hospital.
Staff will be to busy to connect those seriously ill patients with their family members for the final conversations regarding care plans and saying goodbye.
Advance care planning – the difficult conversations – need to happen now.

We hope you find the above useful. We urge everyone to stay home, practice hand-washing, and physical distancing. Stay safe everyone. We will get through this!

MWRRA Spring 2019 Newsletter


The MeadowWood Rattray Residents Association-Spring 2019 Newsletter


President’s Message

Greetings to everyone in the MWRRA neighbourhood!

2019 has become the year of transformation or change. Changes that will be impact us as Residents of Clarkson, Mississauga, the Region of Peel, and as citizens of the Province of Ontario.

There will be many development pressures coming in the months and years ahead. The Clarkson Transit Area (TSA) Study has asked for community feedback to help create a vision for the future of this area. This will be an area of intense development. Along with the other developments along the Lakeshore there will be more than 60,000 people/cars moving into the Lakeshore corridor from Southdown Rd. through Lakeview. 

The government of Ontario has decided to review Regional Governance across Ontario. This review has been rushed, conducted without any unbiased research/studies and the government plans to make the decision that will impact all of us for decades to come in a 2 month time frame. Shouldn’t the residents of Peel ultimately be the ones to decide the fate of their region? Mississauga Council is pushing for secession based on a rushed Report and limited research. The Region’s Deloitte report and the City’s Corporate Report are contradictory. As a Resident it is very difficult to make a decision for Secession, Amalgamation or Status Quo based on the data currently available. Go to our website for more information – MWRRA.ca

Sue Shanly, President MWRRA
