Help make history at Toronto Vaccine Day at Scotiabank Arena.
Let’s break the record for the number of people getting vaccinated in one clinic on one day in Canada: Sunday, June 27. Clinic hours will be 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
First doses available to:
Second doses available to:
As of Wednesday, anyone who received a first dose of Pfizer or Moderna prior to May 30 will also be able to book an appointment at this clinic.
Book your vaccine for this event using the Provincial booking system:
The clinic will be administering primarily the Moderna vaccine, with very limited Pfizer doses reserved for youth ages 12 to 17 with confirmed appointments.
The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are similar with near identical efficacy rates. The “mixed mRNA model” (mixing Pfizer and Moderna for first and second dose) as well as a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine followed by a second dose mRNA vaccine is approved by both the federal and provincial governments.
The Raptor and Carlton the Bear will welcome participants. Add the pink bandage to your selfie and share on social media.
The COVID-19 vaccine is free for everyone in Ontario.
COVID-19 vaccines are not given at the same time as other vaccines. If you received another vaccine recently (not a COVID-19 vaccine), make sure that your appointment is at least 14 days after you received the other vaccine. Wait at least 28 days after getting the COVID-19 vaccine to receive another vaccine.
If you have a fever or COVID-19 symptoms, please reschedule your appointment for a later date, when you are feeling better.
Learn more about vaccine use by age. Consult with your health care provider before getting vaccinated, if you:
Your health care provider will review the benefits and risks for your unique situation.
Residents without OHIP cards who meet the current vaccine eligibility criteria for their first or second dose can request assistance to book their vaccination appointment at a City-operated immunization clinic. Please note that once you receive your first dose, you must call again to request assistance to book your second dose.
Eligible residents who received a first dose of Pfizer, Moderna or an AstraZeneca vaccine at a pharmacy, hospital, or pop-up clinic can also request assistance booking an accelerated second dose at a City-operated immunization clinic. People who are not currently eligible for an accelerated second dose appointment may request this rebooking support when they become eligible.
To request assistance booking your first or second dose appointment, contact one of the following organizations:
Adam House, Matthew House, Romero House and Sojourn House will also provide booking support to their clients and help support people who call through the above intake partners, as required.
Residents requesting assistance to book their appointment may be invited to leave their contact information so a representative can return their call, if a representative is not immediately available. As we work to serve residents as quickly as possible, we ask that you do not leave your contact information with more than one booking partner.
Residents without an OHIP card may use other forms of identification to book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment through agency partners. Government-issued photo ID (including non-Canadian and expired documents) such as a driver’s licence, passport, piece of registered mail, pay stub or student card may be used.
Residents without an OHIP card can also book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment through hospitals and Ontario Health Team-led clinics by visiting www.vaccineto.ca.
Everyone 12 years of age and over in Ontario is currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
Youth 12 to 17 years of age should talk about the benefits and risks of getting the vaccine with a parent or trusted adult. Consent from parents may not be needed if the young person is capable of making the decision. This means the young person must understand information about the vaccine, why it is being recommended and what will happen if they accept or refuse vaccination.
Please note that Toronto Public Health is not providing invitation codes for people to register for vaccines or accepting requests for onsite workplace clinics. Toronto Public Health staff are not able to provide information about scheduled appointments over the phone.

Please note that people who are 12 to 17 years old, including those who are currently 17 and turning 18 in 2021, will be eligible to book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment only for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine
If you received your first dose on or before May 9, you are eligible to book your second dose for an earlier date. Learn more about booking your second dose appointment.
|People with certain health conditions:
City-run immunization clinics and many hospital immunization clinics require a letter or form from your clinician to confirm that you are eligible to receive a second dose appointment at the shortened interval identifying the reason for exception. The letter or form should be presented at both the first and second appointments.

|People who are 70 years of age and older in 2021||
People who are turning 70 years of age and older in 2021 are eligible to book their second dose for an earlier date. Learn more about booking your second dose appointment.
The Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccines require two doses.
In Ontario, the interval between your first and second dose is up to 16 weeks. The following groups are currently eligible to book an accelerated second dose:
The province has indicated that they will continue to accelerate second doses based on when people received their first dose and the availability of vaccines. All residents are encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as they can, and to receive their second dose as soon as they are eligible to ensure maximum protection against COVID-19.
When you are eligible for an accelerated second dose, you are encouraged to book at the same location where you received your first dose.
Depending on which vaccine you received, you may also be able to book at another location:
People who are eligible to receive their second dose at a City immunization clinic must book an appointment using the provincial booking system. No walk-ins are available.
Many hospitals are contacting people who received their first dose at hospital or pop-up clinics to book their second dose as they become eligible. Please check your email (including your junk mail folder) and the phone number you provided when you booked or received your first dose.
If you already have a second dose appointment booked, you can choose to keep your current second dose appointment. If you book a second dose appointment at a different location, please make sure to cancel the other appointment so it can be made available to someone else.
The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are incredibly similar with near identical efficacy rates. A “mixed mRNA model” – mixing Pfizer and Moderna for first and second dose – is approved by both the federal and provincial governments. Both vaccines have similar side effects. People are encouraged to get whichever vaccine is easiest or fastest for them to access.
Beginning Sunday, June 20, individuals 18 years of age or older who have an appointment booked at one of the City-run immunization clinics will receive a Moderna mRNA vaccine. Clinic staff will ensure clients are aware of which vaccine brand they will be receiving, however, there will be no opportunity for clients to request or switch to a particular vaccine brand. The limited Pfizer mRNA vaccine supply will be reserved and administered to youth 12 to 17 years old.
Moderna is approved for use in anyone over 18 years of age; youth aged 12 to 17 years old will only receive Pfizer.
As of June 17, 2021, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends that an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine is now preferred as the second dose for people who received a first dose of the AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccine. If you received a first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine you can choose to either receive a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, or an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine for your second dose. Both second-dose options are safe and provide strong protection against COVID-19 and will count as a completed series. Individuals who received their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine are eligible to book their second dose appointment at an interval of eight weeks or more with informed consent.
If you would like a second dose of AstraZeneca, you can book your appointment by contacting the pharmacy or primary care provider where you received your first dose.
If you are opting to receive an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine, you can schedule your second dose appointment at a participating pharmacy where Pfizer or Moderna vaccines are administered. Primary care settings and pharmacies may also reach out to eligible residents. Individuals who received their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine and who choose to receive an mRNA vaccine for their second dose can also register for a second dose at a an interval of eight weeks or more through the provincial booking system.
All of these options are safe, provide strong protection against COVID-19, and will count as a completed series (you will be fully vaccinated).
If you live in Toronto and received one dose of a two-dose vaccine outside Ontario, your first dose needs to be documented before you can book your second dose. Find out how to document a vaccine received outside Ontario.
If you live in Toronto and received one dose of a two-dose vaccine outside Ontario, your first dose needs to be documented before you can book your second dose. You can document individual COVID-19 vaccines or a full series in Toronto Public Health’s online portal. You will be required to submit proof of vaccination.
Some people vaccinated in Ontario received vaccine from what is referred to as non-Ontario stock. This refers to vaccine that was not allocated to Ontario or recorded in the provincial vaccine management system. Generally these doses were delivered at institutions such as correctional facilities, military groups or embassies. People who received one or two doses of vaccine from the non-Ontario stock may also document them through Toronto Public Health’s online portal.
People are encouraged to document their COVID-19 vaccines in the event booster shots are needed in the future and to help public health monitor vaccine coverage.
If you do not have proof of vaccination, please contact the health care provider who gave you the COVID-19 vaccine(s) to receive a copy of your vaccination record.
If you need assistance documenting your COVID-19 vaccine or if you are not able to provide proof of your vaccination, please call Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600 (TTY: 416-392-0658).
If you received a first dose of a vaccine that is not approved for use in Canada, you do not need to document the vaccine you received. Currently, only first doses of Pfizer-BioNTech (also known as COMIRNATY or Tozinameran), Moderna and AstraZeneca (also known as COVISHIELD or Vaxzevria) received outside Ontario will be recognized, consistent with guidance from the Ontario Ministry of Health.
If you received another vaccine, you are encouraged to restart your vaccination series to receive a vaccine that is approved for use in Canada. Find out where you can book.
If you received a complete series of a vaccine that is not approved for use in Canada, you should only document it if it is approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization. Currently, only complete series of Pfizer-BioNTech (also known as COMIRNATY or Tozinameran), Moderna, AstraZeneca (also known as COVISHIELD or Vaxzevria), Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) and Sinopharm received outside Ontario are recognized, consistent with guidance from the Ontario Ministry of Health.
If you received another vaccine that is not approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization, you are encouraged to restart your vaccination series to receive a vaccine that is approved for use in Canada. Find out where you can book.
Adults 18 years of age or older who live in the City of Toronto and cannot physically leave their home to receive the vaccine for medical, physical, cognitive or psychosocial reasons are eligible for in-home vaccination. An essential caregiver who lives in the home may also be vaccinated if they are eligible at the time of booking for other reasons (based on age or caring for someone with certain medical conditions as per Provincial eligibility).
If you are physically able to leave your home, check information about vaccine eligibility to find out where you can book an appointment. Transportation support is available if you need help getting to your appointment.
Please register through the health service that you are currently linked with:
If you receive care through primary care or homecare and HCCSS, please contact your primary or homecare provider first. If your primary care or homecare service provider cannot provide the vaccine, you will be referred to Toronto Paramedic Services.
Partners are working toward the citywide goal of administering second doses to all homebound residents by mid-August.
The Team Toronto vaccination strategy, which includes the City of Toronto, Toronto Public Health and healthcare partners, is working to expand mobile vaccination efforts to bring vaccines to neighbourhoods in greatest need. This helps increase access and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines among local residents. Mobile and pop-up clinics are brought to the attention of eligible local residents directly through community partners such as family doctors, employers, building managers, faith leaders and other local leaders who are directly connected to the people the mobile clinics will serve.
Residents in the identified hot spots must show proof of age and address when arriving at the clinic. Acceptable forms of identification include:
Starting June 10, the Team Toronto Sprint Strategy mobile and pop-up clinics are refocusing efforts to provide access to first and second vaccine doses in neighbourhoods with high incidence of COVID-19, low vaccine coverage and where the Delta variant has been identified.
Based on Toronto Public Health data, the Team Toronto Sprint Strategy 2.0 will concentrate on 18 hot spot postal codes to increase dose one vaccine uptake, and to accelerate second dose access for people in these neighbourhoods to protect against the emerging Delta variant. People 12 years of age or older who have not yet received a first dose of vaccine will be encouraged to receive one.
In addition, all individuals who live, work or attend school in one of the following neighbourhoods will be able to receive a second dose at one of the pop-up clinics in their area, based on the minimum interval following federal and provincial frameworks:

Daily vaccinations administered at each City immunization clinic:
Hospital immunization clinics are currently providing vaccination appointments to individuals based on provincial prioritization guidance. Visit www.vaccineto.ca and review the eligibility criteria for each site.
Do not go directly to a hospital vaccination clinic without a confirmed appointment. You will not receive a vaccination without an appointment.
Individuals should only sign up at one vaccination clinic site and are asked to not pre-register or book appointments at multiple locations. Individuals are also encouraged to pre-register or book an appointment at the clinics nearest to where they live and, in the case of health care workers, closest to where they work.
All parts of the vaccination program are dependent on vaccine supply and direction from the Province.
Residents should not call 3-1-1 or hospital directly to book appointments nor should they attend a clinic unless they have a confirmed appointment.
View a map of immunization clinics and filter by City-run clinics, hospital clinics and pharmacies. The map shows location and transit options. For parking and accessibility at City-run clinics see below.
Find the pharmacy closest to you that offers COVID-19 vaccines.
Pharmacies are using either Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. These vaccines are available for people who are 18 years or older in 2021 who meet the provincial eligibility criteria.
Most pharmacies book appointments ahead of time and some allow walk-ins. Check with the pharmacy before you go.
Due to supply challenges, COVID-19 vaccines may be out of stock at certain pharmacies. Please check with your pharmacy first.
You must bring a valid Ontario health (OHIP) card, or other form of valid government-issued identification with you to the appointment.
The pharmacy will book your second appointment closer to when the second appointment is due and contact you with the details.
The City of Toronto will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behaviour at its immunization clinics. The City is committed to promoting respectful conduct, tolerance and inclusion in all of its workplaces.
Staff are working diligently to help bring an end to this pandemic by administering vaccines that will protect residents, their loved ones and the most vulnerable people in our city.
Anyone who engages in abusive or aggressive behaviour will be asked to leave the clinic.
The Vaccine Equity Transportation Plan offers transportation services to people who may be unable to access or afford existing transportation options to get to their vaccination appointments.
Transportation through the City’s community ride partners is available to seniors, people with disabilities and others who have underlying conditions that put them at greater risk from COVID-19 and/or render them unable to safely access other modes of transportation.
This program is intended for those who have no other options for transportation to vaccination appointments.
Residents are encouraged to help their family members, friends and neighbours with booking their vaccination appointments and providing a ride to their appointments.
A support person or family member can accompany you on the ride, if needed.
Note that transportation vehicles are not accessible and clients should be able to step into the vehicles (with assistance). There will be approximately one hour between drop off at the vaccination clinic and pick up after the appointment.
Transportation is delivered through a collaborative network of City and Ministry of Health funded community not-for-profit agencies that provide rides to vaccination clinics such as City-run immunization clinics, hospitals or pharmacies.
People who receive social assistance may be eligible for medical transportation funds to help cover costs of travel to receive their COVID-19 vaccination. Social assistance recipients should contact their caseworker to access transportation funds they may be eligible for.
Uber Canada has made a generous donation of voucher codes for individual rides.
Starting May 28, these vouchers will be distributed to a network of partner community organizations to provide to people who have no transportation options, live in communities with high rates of COVID-19, who have challenges travelling to be vaccinated, as well as for some people with disabilities. Uber Canada vouchers are limited and are not guaranteed.
The TTC is working with the City to distribute 15,000 TTC ride vouchers through a network of partner community agencies across Toronto to provide to people who cannot afford transit fare, with no-cost rides to and from vaccination sites starting in May.
