Mayor Patrick Brown says youth in that age band who live, work or attend school in Peel Region will be eligible for Pfizer-BioNTech shots.
Youth aged 12 to 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to their appointments.

Ontario has said it plans to expand access to all youth aged 12 and older starting the week of May 31.
