Toronto Public Health continues to recommend wearing a well-fitting, high quality mask in indoor public spaces (especially if crowded) and for added protection if you are a senior or have a health condition.
Throughout the pandemic, Toronto Public Health and Team Toronto partners have been bringing vaccines directly to workplaces, faith groups, organizations and communities that experience barriers to vaccination and low vaccine uptake. Mobile teams organized by Ontario Health Teams and Toronto Public Health have been offering vaccines for people experiencing homelessness, staying in shelters or visiting a drop-in program location.
Eight vaccine clinics have been added in the northwest part of the city for the month of June to augment vaccination opportunities for residents who live, work and play in these neighbourhoods. Read the news release.

A school mobile clinic model has been developed in partnership between Team Toronto partners, Toronto Public Health (TPH) and Toronto’s four public school boards. In addition to COVID-19 vaccines, TPH is working to bring oral health screening and School Immunization Program vaccines, including Hepatitis B, Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and Meningococcal vaccines, to selected public schools in the city. Students from surrounding schools will also have access to the school mobile clinics after school hours.
At these clinics, dental screenings are provided to students from Junior Kindergarten through Grade 12. The screening, which is provided by a TPH Dental and Oral Health Services staff, does not replace a dental examination done at a dentist’s office, however it can help to identify problems that should be looked at more closely.
Parents, guardians and students will receive information from their school Principal when a clinic is being hosted. Specific clinic details, including an appointment booking link, will be provided in the letter. Students in Grades 7 to 12 are encouraged to book a vaccine appointment at the clinic, although walk-in appointments are also available. No appointment is required for dental screening.
Students who would like to be vaccinated with one or more School Immunization Program vaccines and/or the COVID-19 vaccine should complete the appropriate consent form(s).
For clinics that happen during school hours:
For clinics that happen outside of school hours:
Bring a copy of the student’s immunization record and health card, if available, or other identification. Be prepared to answer these questions for Adults (12+ years) and (Children 5-11 years) prior to getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
Toronto Public Heath (TPH) is taking requests for pop-up vaccination clinics to come to your neighbourhood, workplace or other location to provide COVID-19 vaccinations.
