The vaccines will be administered at the International Centre in Mississauga.

Appointments can be booked online or by calling the Region of Peel at 905-791-5202 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.

Appointments are encouraged because a limited number of walk-in spots will be available for first doses.

More than 2,000 Peel residents who identified themselves as truck drivers have contracted Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic, the region reports.
