This morning at 8 a.m., eligible residents can book 8,500 new COVID-19 vaccine appointments at City-run clinics for this coming Sunday and Monday.
As Mayor John Tory announced yesterday, these additional 8,500 appointments will be live in the provincial booking system starting today at 8 a.m. and were added as part of the ongoing work to increase Team Toronto’s vaccination capacity through the Toronto Omicron Action Plan.
In response to the Omicron variant, all members of Team Toronto have worked to increase total vaccination capacity to more than 1.2 million doses per month at the City-run clinics, hospital partner clinics, more than 525 local pharmacies and doctors’ offices.
Current Team Toronto vaccination efforts include rolling out fourth doses to residents in the City’s long-term homes and expanding opportunities for education workers and students to get vaccinated over the coming days.
More than 939,000 eligible Toronto residents have now received their third dose of COVID-19 vaccine. According to the latest numbers from January 4, 89.5 per cent of residents 12 and older have at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine and 86.7 per cent of residents 12 and older have two doses. More than 46 per cent of kids aged five to 11 now have their first dose; seven per cent have two doses.
Since December 2020, more than six million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered by Team Toronto as the progress to help residents of all ages get vaccinated continues.
The following clinic locations are operating today:
The five City-run immunization clinics continue to add new appointments for first, second and third doses of COVID-19 vaccine. To book an appointment, click the blue “Book a Vaccine” button on Toronto.ca/COVID-19 or call 1-833-943-3900. City-run clinics are easily accessible by transit and offer free parking on site. Clinic staff are also able to provide resources in multiple languages. A person with a vaccination appointment can also bring a support person to help with translation.
While City-run clinics and health care partners across the province await further shipments of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine later this month, as of today, January 7, all City-run clinics will administer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to residents 30 years of age and older.
People with vaccination appointments are asked to arrive no more than 10 minutes early to vaccination clinics. There will be vaccine doses available for everyone who has an appointment; arriving earlier than necessary does not impact availability. There are no walk-in appointments at City-run vaccination clinics. More information on City-operated immunization clinic transportation options and on-site amenities is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage.

Given the emergence of the new Omicron variant and ongoing community transmission of the Delta variant, Toronto Public Health urges all eligible residents to book their third-dose appointment. Residents who have not yet received their first or second COVID-19 vaccine shot are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. COVID-19 vaccines lower the risk of serious illness, hospitalization and death, while protecting oneself, loved ones and the community.
Residents should also continue to follow public health measures such as mask wearing, good hand hygiene and physical distancing. Those who have symptoms of COVID-19 are asked to stay at home and get tested as soon as possible. More information about COVID-19 in Toronto is available at Toronto.ca/COVID-19.
