News Release
July 27, 2021

The City continues to work non-stop with its healthcare partners, pharmacies and Toronto Public Health to administer all available COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 4,269,657 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto as part of the broader Team Toronto initiative.

Total COVID-19 vaccine doses: 4,269,657
Increase from previous total: 14,669
Number of clinics across Toronto today: 33

To date, more than 80 per cent of Toronto adults have received their first shot of COVID-19 vaccine and almost 70 per cent are fully vaccinated.

As of yesterday, first dose vaccinations at City-operated clinics are by walk-in only. All nine City-run clinics are offering walk-in vaccinations for anyone age 12 and older needing a first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Clinics are open to walk-ins every day from noon to 7 p.m.

There are more than 44,000 appointments available at City-run clinics this week. Everyone age 12 years or older is encouraged to book their vaccination appointment as soon as possible. Second dose appointments can be booked by anyone, including youth ages 12 to 17, who received a first Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least 28 days ago or a first AstraZeneca vaccine at least eight weeks ago. To book an appointment, click the blue “Book a Vaccine” button at the City’s COVID-19 webpage or call the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900.

Anyone who has an appointment for later this summer or fall is encouraged to change it to an earlier date and get vaccinated sooner. Appointments at City-run clinics can be cancelled or changed at the provincial Vaccine Booking webpage or by calling the provincial booking line.

A second dose of vaccine is also the best protection against the COVID-19 Delta variant (B.1.617.2) that is more infectious than other strains of the virus. Recent studies have shown that two weeks after the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, a person’s protection against the Delta variant is 50 per cent higher than one dose alone.
