Get Back to Better. Vaccinate Brampton

BRAMPTON, ON (June 2, 2021) – As the vaccine rollout continues and following the Province’s announcement of accelerating second shots this summer – supply permitting, the City is launching its “Get Back to Better. Vaccinate Brampton.” campaign to build on the momentum seen in Brampton and Peel.

“Get Back to Better. Vaccinate Brampton.” focuses on the personal reasons behind why local influential Bramptonians have made the decision to be vaccinated, and illustrates how, by all residents receiving their vaccinations as they become available to them, the community will protect those around them and get back the aspects of life that they’ve missed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vaccines play a critical role in our community building itself Back to Better. Everyone has been impacted by life during COVID-19 differently, and all residents have their own personal reasons for being vaccinated.

Vaccines

As of May 25, 2021, 357,008 Brampton residents – or 52.3 per cent – have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals aged 12 plus who live, work or attend school in Peel are now eligible to book their first vaccine appointment in Peel Region.

On May 28, 2021, the Ontario government’s announced that it was accelerating the rollout of second shots targeting a two-dose summer. If there is sufficient vaccine supply, it is anticipated that the majority of Ontario residents who choose to receive the vaccine will be able to be fully vaccinated by the end of summer.

Currently, Peel residents 80 years or older are eligible to book their second dose at a shortened interval. More information can be found here.

Health and safety reminders

Even if residents have been vaccinated, they are reminded of the importance of following all health and safety measures meant to keep our community safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. Bramptonians must continue to wear masks, practise physical distancing, maintain good hygiene and stay home if they are feeling unwell.

Protect yourself and your loved ones, and if you haven’t already done so, book your first COVID-19 vaccine. Stay up-to-date on second dose eligibility on the Province’s vaccine booking portal, and book your vaccine as soon as you can. Together, we will stop the spread of COVID-19.
