This morning, Mayor John Tory announced that Team Toronto has administered more than 2.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses. To date, 2,517,765 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto. Toronto is the first local health region in Canada to administer more than 2.5 million vaccine doses.
As of yesterday evening, approximately 769,377 people have booked COVID-19 vaccination appointments at a City-operated clinic. Vaccinations at City clinics are by appointment only and walk-in clients cannot be accommodated.
On Monday, June 14 at 8 a.m. the City will open more than 60,000 additional bookings for vaccination appointments between June 14 and July 4 at City-run immunization clinics. Including these new appointments, the City will now be able to provide approximately 180,000 vaccinations at its clinics over this three-week period.
Anyone who cannot attend a scheduled appointment is urged to cancel or reschedule. This allows others to book an available appointment and ensures that the City and healthcare partners can vaccinate the maximum number of people every day as quickly as possible.

At 8 a.m. on Monday, June 14, all Toronto residents, regardless of neighbourhood, who and received a first dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine on May 9 or earlier will be eligible to book their accelerated second dose appointment in the provincial booking system.
