The City of Toronto is working non-stop with its healthcare partners, pharmacies and Toronto Public Health to administer all available COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 2,063,923 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto.
As of yesterday evening, approximately 737,326 people have booked COVID-19 vaccination appointments at a City-run clinic.
Reports of people showing up at vaccination clinics, intimidating and harassing clinic staff, demanding a second dose of vaccine are troubling and completely unacceptable. We ask all members of the public to respect the staff working to get all residents vaccinated.
Everyone age 12 years or older is encouraged to book an appointment by clicking the blue “Book a Vaccine” button at the City’s COVID-19 webpage or through phone by calling the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900. More information about what to expect when you get a COVID-19 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.

- Regent Heights Public School – Students age 12 years and older attending Regent Heights Public School, SATEC @ W.A., Porter Collegiate Institute, Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School, Clairlea Public School, General Brock Public School, St. Joachim Catholic School and St. Dunstan Catholic School, and their immediate family.
