Together, the City of Toronto, healthcare partners, pharmacies and Toronto Public Health have now administered more than one million COVID-19 vaccines.
To date, 1,004,339 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto.
Toronto is the first local health region in Canada to administer more than one million doses of vaccine.
The Team Toronto effort is focused on getting as many residents vaccinated as quickly as possible based on available supply. It is also expanding mobile vaccination efforts across Toronto to bring vaccine to the neighbourhoods most in need.
Yesterday, for example, Toronto Public Health in collaboration with Rexdale Community Hub held a pop-up clinic in postal code M9V. Ten community ambassadors and three people from Rexdale Community Hub promoted the clinic, and twenty healthcare professionals vaccinated approximately 639 people age 18 years and older.
Today, our partners will hold a number of mobile and pop-up clinics in hot spot neighbourhoods, including:
Currently, people age 40 and older in Ontario are now eligible for vaccination. Vaccinations are available at City-operated immunization clinics for residents 60 years of age and older, and residents 50 years of age or older who live in hot spots. Toronto residents 40 years of age and older can book vaccination appointments at participating pharmacies to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine.
All COVID-19 vaccines, no matter where you get them, are available free of charge. Information on how people from the various eligibility categories can register for vaccination appointments at City-run and partner clinics is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage.
As of yesterday evening, approximately 302,393 people have booked COVID-19 vaccination appointments at a City-operated immunization clinic. A small number of appointments are available for the next two weeks. A new block of approximately 231,000 appointments in City-operated clinics between May 10 and June 6 will soon be available through the Province’s online booking system. Eligible residents are encouraged to book an appointment through the “Book a Vaccine” button the City’s COVID-19 web page or by phone by calling the Provincial Vaccine Information Line at 1-888-999-6488.
