Brampton - Peel Public Health will continue to offer H1N1 shots to its residents until Friday, December 11.

Clinics at the Brampton Soccer Centre, Bronte College (Mississauga) and Blessed Trinity (Mississauga) will continue on their current schedules. Clinic operations at the International Centre will close at the end of day Monday, November 30 and 11 Indell Lane in Brampton will close at the end of day Friday, December 4.

"We have seen steady, continued interest from our residents but some clinics are much busier than others," said Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health for the Region of Peel. "It makes good sense to offer people shots when and where they want them and to also use resources wisely by closing those locations where demand has fallen."

H1N1 shots are also available at many doctor's offices and walk-in clinics across Peel. Together, Peel Public Health and community doctors have vaccinated more than 210,000 people of all ages.

A special clinic for children between one and three years of age who need a second dose of vaccine will be held in early January. Information about the second-dose clinic will be announced by December 11. A full schedule of clinic locations and times is available at http://www.peelregion.ca/ or by calling 905-799-7700. Pregnant women and those with children 6 months to one year should contact their doctor or call Peel Public Health between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine.
