COVID-19 Vaccine Standby List:

THP’s vaccine standby list ensures that any excess vaccine doses are used at the end of each day.

Vaccine doses taken from storage are closely matched to the number of appointments expected each day. At the end of the day, there may be a few doses of vaccine left at clinics due to no-shows or cancellations.

This list only holds 150 names. Over the next 1-2 weeks, we will work to vaccinate all individuals on this list. As this list is complete, we will invite the next 150 people.

This standby list is for individuals who:

  • Have not received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Second dose appointments will not be given.
  • Live in Peel and THP’s catchment area, including Mississauga, Halton and Etobicoke
  • Are able to be on-site at a THP vaccine clinic at 6:45 p.m.
    THP’s Vaccine Clinic Locations:
    Mississauga Hospital: 100 Queensway West, Mississauga ON L5B 1B8
    UTM: 3359 Mississauga Road, Mississauga ON L5L 1C6

Important information about this list:

  • Signing up to the list does not guarantee that you will be called for a standby appointment. If excess doses of vaccine become available, we may call you.
  • People on the list will receive their vaccination on a first come, first serve basis, based on how many doses need to be used at the end of the day at each clinic.
  • The list will only hold 150 people each week. Once this number is reached, a message in the sign-up form will notify you that no more names can be added to the list.
  • If you have received your vaccine elsewhere, email COVIDVaccineScheduler@thp.ca to remove your name from this list.
  • Once you are called, you will be asked to go to the specific clinic at 6:45 p.m. in case there is a leftover dose for you. People who arrive without receiving a phone call will not be vaccinated.
  • If you were called and there is no leftover dose for you at the end of the day, we will guarantee that you will receive a vaccine dose within the next 24 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

I made a mistake when booking an appointment (wrong email, address, cancellation, etc.) What should I do?

We encourage you to email COVIDVaccineScheduler@thp.ca to correct the error or call THP’s Vaccine Call Centre at 289-521-4333. Please have your booking information ready. We ask for your patience as we experience high volumes.

How do I book my second dose appointment?

When booking online, you are only able to book your first dose appointment. Your second dose appointment is booked when you arrive at the clinic for your first dose appointment.

What is the eligibility and guidelines for individuals with high priority health conditions?

As of April 23, per direction from the Ministry of Health, pregnant individuals are now considered highest risk and can pre-register for their vaccine appointment at THP. Pregnant individuals may choose to receive the vaccine at any time during their pregnancy. However, essential consideration should be made for those in the later stages of their pregnancy.

It is recommended, but not required, that pregnant individuals have discussion with their treating health care provider, or with a health care provider familiar with their pregnancy.

Please see the COVID-19 Vaccination Recommendations for Special Populations for further details on COVID-19 vaccination for pregnant individuals. For additional information on eligible essential caregivers, visit page 15-17 of the Ministry of Health’s Guidance for Prioritization of Phase 2 Populations for COVID-19 Vaccination.

Can a friend or loved one book an appointment on my behalf?

Yes. Once appointments are available, a member of the THP COVID-19 scheduling team will notify the contact provided via email to book the appointment.

What is an essential caregiver?

An essential caregiver is someone providing direct, frequent and sustained in-person personal care and/or assistance with activities of daily living to the individual with the health condition.

When I arrive at the clinic, can I choose which vaccine I get?

No. Vaccine distribution is managed by the Ontario Ministry of Health. Currently, THP administers the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at both our clinics.

What do I need to bring to my appointment? Health card? Driver's license?

Health card or citizenship is not required. Please bring something verifying your contact information and your current address.

Do I need to pay for parking when I go to get my vaccine at a THP vaccine clinic?

Parking is free at THP's COVID-19 vaccine clinics.

Can individuals bring someone to help them at the clinic? E.g. primary caregiver.

Yes, if you require direct support, you may bring up to one adult with you. Due to the high volume of people in our clinics each day and to ensure appropriate safety measures, including physical distancing, we ask that you refrain from bringing children if possible. However, if child care is a challenge, we will do our best to accommodate you. We recognize this is difficult and appreciate your support.

I am a primary caregiver for an individual – can I accompany them for their appointment, can I get the COVID-19 vaccine while I'm there?

Not at this time. As per provincial direction, primary caregivers are not yet eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine unless they meet the eligibility aligned with the Ministry of Health and Public Health guidelines and have booked an appointment in our clinic.

Peel Public Health also has a number of mass vaccination clinics now serving priority groups in the community. They are listed on their website, or you can call 905-791-5202 for more information.

Will you provide transportation to the clinic?

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 must be eligible to receive the vaccine. 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.

Will people need to schedule an appointment or is this a walk-in clinic?

All THP COVID-19 vaccine clinics are by appointment only as it allows us to effectively manage vaccine supply, staffing needs and the number of people in the clinic at any given time to ensure physical distancing is possible. We cannot accept walk-ins.

Is the COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic safe?

THP follows rigorous protocols to ensure the safety of staff and the community. This includes mandatory screening upon entry and use of PPE at all times, physical distancing protocols, regular hand washing and sanitizing. When arriving at the clinic, community members are screened for COVID-19 symptoms and must wear their mask at all times. Please click here for a list of THP-approved masks.

I misplaced my proof of vaccination. What should I do?

If you have misplaced your proof of vaccination, you can easily retrieve it by visiting covid19.ontariohealth.ca and following the step-by-step instructions. This website works with most modern browsers on desktop and mobile devices. If you did not consent to having your COVID-19 vaccination reported while you were in the vaccine clinic, you will not have a confirmation receipt as it could not be reported in our systems.

What vaccine does THP administer?

THP is currently administering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at both our clinics. Please note that vaccine distribution is managed by the Ontario Ministry of Health, therefore, THP’s supply is subject to change.

If I get vaccinated, will I need a booster shot?

Recent studies show the vaccine is effective for at least 6 months. Based on these study results it is expected that the protective immune response will last far longer, likely beyond one year. There is a possibility we will need booster shots at some point, these may take the form of a yearly booster shot, or, not unlike the annual flu shot, they may provide protection from a new variant if there’s one that the current vaccine is less effective against. For now, we’re not sure if a booster will be required, or what the timing of that might look like.

How do I know that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe?

Health Canada has approved four vaccines after thorough scientific reviews for safety, efficacy and quality based on large, high-quality clinical trials:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech – approved on December 9, 2020
  • Moderna – approved on December 23, 2020
  • AstraZeneca – approved on February 26, 2021
  • Johnson & Johnson – approved on March 5, 2021

These vaccines have met all the requirements for approval, including safety. They continue to be monitored for any adverse reactions that may occur after vaccination and appropriate measures will be taken, which is consistent with current practice for all new vaccines and drugs.

If I get vaccinated, can I stop with COVID-19 and public health measures?

Although vaccination provides protection against symptomatic COVID-19 infection, we are not sure at this point if it prevents the individual from spreading the virus to other people.

We must remain vigilant as infection rates are at record highs and wide vaccine rollout may take up to a year. Everyone – vaccinated or not – must continue to mask, physically distance and maintain hand hygiene.

If I had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need the vaccine?

Yes. We don’t know how long natural immunity from COVID-19 lasts, so it is best to get vaccinated, even if you have had COVID-19. Please speak with your primary care provider to get more information specific to your health status.

What are the potential side effects of the vaccine?

Most people who receive vaccines have minimal or no side effects, although, as with any medicine, adverse reactions can occur. The most common side effects are injection site pain, swelling, redness; headache; stomach and digestive complaints (e.g. nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and/or stomach pain); muscle or joint pain; tiredness; headache and chills/fever.
If you are concerned about the vaccine and potential side effects, speak with your primary care provider

What are the COVID-19 vaccine side effects?

Most side effects are mild and should not last longer than a week. They include:

  • a sore arm where the needle went in
  • feeling tired
  • a headache
  • fever
  • feeling achy

If this does happen, it usually happens within minutes. Staff giving the vaccine are trained to deal with allergic reactions and treat immediately.

Where can I get more information on the vaccines?

Peel residents can contact the Peel Public Health website for more information.
You can visit the Health Canada website the Ontario Government website for more information about vaccines.

How do we know it's ok to expand the second dose from 35 days to 16 weeks?

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends extending the second dose interval up to 16 weeks in light of evidence supporting a strong immune response following the first dose of Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccines.

The effectiveness of an extended dose interval will be monitored and assessed, including effectiveness

Reducing the risk of hospitalizations and deaths at the population level remains a priority and will have the greatest impact on resolving the pandemic
