The City of Toronto and Team Toronto vaccination partners are working to vaccinate everyone who wants a vaccine against COVID-19 as quickly as possible. While second doses – now administered to more than 30 per cent of adults – continue to rollout, the City is reminding all residents to follow all provincial regulations, City bylaws and public health advice to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

There are 68 new cases of COVID-19 in Toronto today. Since the start of the pandemic there have been a total of 169,429 cases of COVID-19. There are 540 people hospitalized. To date, there have been 3,500 COVID-19 deaths in Toronto. In total, 164,776 people have recovered. Case status data can be found on Toronto Public Health’s reporting dashboard.

Today, the City announced that the Toronto Vaccine Day “Our Winning Shot” clinic at Scotiabank Arena is completely booked with 25,000 people scheduled to attend the clinic this Sunday, June 27. Appointments may open as people change existing appointments. The exciting vaccination event is set to break the North American record for the most single-day vaccination at a clinic.

For those still looking for vaccination appointments, appointments remain available at City-operated immunization clinics across Toronto. Anyone age 12 and older is eligible to book a first dose vaccination appointment. Adults age 18 and older who received a first dose of Moderna or Pfizer prior to May 30 or a first dose of AstraZeneca prior to May 1 are eligible to book accelerated second dose appointments. All City-run clinics are by appointment only and can be booked through the dark blue “Book a Vaccine” button on or by calling the provincial vaccine booking line at 1-833-943-3900.

All residents should 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.
