Some COVID-19 clinics in the Halton region announced Wednesday that they will allow residents 16 years old and older to book appointments as of April 30.

According to Halton Public Health, appointments for residents 16-17 years of age are limited to its Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital and Joseph Brant Hospital locations.

The move will ensure that teens receive the Pfizer vaccine, which is currently the only one approved in Canada for that age group.

However, in order to book an appointment, you must be living in the L9E postal code in Milton. It's also worth noting that anyone turning 16 must have their birthday before their first dose to qualify.

Anyone living in this area looking to get a vaccine dose can book through Halton's online system.
