Oxford Properties is continuing to support the fight against COVID-19 by donating space at Scarborough Town Centre shopping centre to host a Toronto Public Health COVID-19 vaccination clinic. By collaborating with the City of Toronto and Toronto Public Health, it will help support the Canadian national vaccination effort and serve its local community.
Oxford has also joined the REALPAC initiative to donate space in convenient, accessible commercial real estate buildings with public transit and parking options. The vaccination centre at Scarborough Town Centre will be the second at an Oxford shopping centre. The first community vaccination clinic in an Oxford shopping centre opened at DIX30, in Brossard, Quebec, in January.
“Due to their size, accessibility and experience of our property management teams in safely handling thousands of visitors daily, our shopping centres can play an important role in getting the vaccine as quickly and safely to as many Canadians as possible,” said Bradley Jones, Head of Retail, Oxford Properties. “Supporting community vaccination efforts allows us to play our part in the collective response against COVID-19 and give back to the communities which we are so proud to serve.”
Further locations will be announced by municipal public health agencies in the coming weeks as part of larger community initiatives.
