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, 2,400,844 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto.
As of yesterday evening, approximately 779,681 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.
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.
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.
Appointments are available for people 70 years of age and older, and anyone who received a first Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine dose on or before April 18. Learn about eligibility (including people 12 years and older) and where to get vaccinated.
