The City of Toronto is committed to providing as many vaccination appointments as possible with the vaccine supply available to the nine City-operated immunization clinics.

Today, the City was able to add more than 17,000 new appointments spread across five City-operated clinics for the week of May 10 due to confirmed additional vaccine supply. With this added supply, City-operated clinics can administer approximately 98,000 vaccine doses between May 10 and 16.

These new appointments for next week are now available in the provincial vaccine booking system at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto Congress Centre, Mitchell Field Arena, The Hangar and Cloverdale Mall clinics.

The 17,064 new appointments can be booked by eligible residents through the dark blue “Book a Vaccine” button on or by calling the provincial vaccine booking line at 1-833-943-3900. Eligible groups include:

City-run clinics are part of the Team Toronto vaccination network that includes hundreds of clinics operated by hospitals, pharmacies and other healthcare and community partners. A full list of eligible groups with information on where and how to register for appointments is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage. Those seeking a vaccine appointment are also encouraged to register and check availability with healthcare partners through, local pharmacies or healthcare providers.

For the current wave of COVID-19 in Toronto, amplified by variants of concern, staying home and following public health guidance is the best way to keep everyone safe. Please review the City’s COVID-19: Guide for Residents for public health guidance and information on what is and is not permitted under provincial regulations and City bylaws.


“The City’s Immunization Task Force is working to make sure we are offering as many appointments as vaccine supply allows. As soon as additional vaccine supply was confirmed, we moved to provide these 17,000 new appointments to the public. I encourage all Toronto residents who are eligible to get vaccinated as soon as possible. The sooner we are all vaccinated, the sooner we will bring this pandemic to an end.”

– Mayor John Tory

“With 17,000 new vaccination appointments coming online, our City-run immunization clinics will be able to provide vaccinations to even more Torontonians. Vaccines are how we end this pandemic. We are committed to continuing to do everything we can to ensure that every resident, in every area of our city, has access to the vaccine.”

– Councillor Joe Cressy (Spadina-Fort York), Chair of the Board of Health

“Nothing matters more than people coming out for vaccination. Team Toronto is working diligently to ensure that as soon as we receive vaccine supply, we get needles into arms. 17,000 new appointments mean 17,000 more individuals can begin their vaccination process.”

– Dr. Eileen de Villa, Medical Officer of Health

“Opening these additional appointments will permit 17,000 additional people to receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, in City-operated clinics, next week. I am very pleased that we are able to leverage the capacity of our network of nine City-operated COVID-19 vaccine clinics to administer these additional doses next week.”
