Benching COVID-19: Celebrating Ontario Hockey Hub vaccination centres

Friday, June 4, 2021

1:00 p.m.

Join Bruce Power and the Region of Peel in celebrating the opening of the ‘Hockey Hub’ mass vaccination centre for the region. The event is livestreamed from the CAA Centre in Brampton, which was set up using the Hockey Hub model, developed by Dr. Ian Arra, Medical Officer of Health at the Grey Bruce Health Unit. This model uses a streamlined flow-through process, which can administer more vaccines with fewer clinical staff than traditional mass vaccination clinics. Using an NHL-sized hockey rink, the Centre is one of Canada’s largest vaccination centres.

The event recognizes the coalition of organizations who came together to provide their experience and logistical expertise to deploy the centre at a time and location where it could be most effective in fighting the pandemic.
