The City of Toronto is working with all our healthcare partners, pharmacies and Toronto Public Health to administer all available COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 758,882 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto.
Today, the City opens three additional vaccination clinics at Cloverdale Mall, North Toronto Memorial Community Centre and Carmine Stefano Community Centre. People people born in 1961 or earlier, and age 50 or older who live in hot spot neighbourhoods as identified by postal code can book vaccination appointments online or by phone at City-run COVID-19 immunization clinics.
Following last week’s provincial announcement, the Team Toronto approach is shifting further towards vaccinating essential workers where they live – in areas where we know there are high COVID-19 case counts. Hospital and healthcare partners have clinics up and running vaccinating residents in hot spot neighbourhoods right now.
As of yesterday evening, approximately 244,155 people have booked COVID-19 vaccination appointments at a City-run clinic, an increase of 74,185 people since the vaccine eligibility was expanded on Friday. There are appointments still available. Eligible residents are encouraged to book an appointment through the dark blue “Book a Vaccine” button on www.toronto.ca/covid-19 with the added option of booking by phone through the Provincial Vaccine Information Line at 1-888-999-6488.

The City and healthcare partners are working to operate a total of approximately 28 clinics today, including mobile teams and on-site clinics, to vaccinate priority groups identified by the Province of Ontario’s priority framework. These clinics are only vaccinating those in the priority groups who have confirmed appointments.

The City, Toronto Public Health, hospitals and community healthcare centres are all working together to get Torontonians vaccinated as quickly as possible. Getting vaccinated protects individuals, their close contacts and the community. As vaccine supply for the general population becomes widely available from the Government of Canada and the Province, more than 350 clinics, including pharmacies and mobile clinics across Toronto, will vaccinate people following the priority framework established by the Province.
In order to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the community, protect the healthcare system and save lives, the City continues to urge all residents to follow the Provincial Stay-at-Home order and only go out for essential reasons such as grocery shopping or for exercise.
