This morning, Mayor John Tory announced that Team Toronto has now administered more than two million COVID-19 vaccine doses.
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, 2,010,103 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto.
Toronto is the first local health region in Canada to administer more than two million vaccine doses. This latest milestone comes a day after the City confirmed more than 65 per cent of eligible adults have received at least their first dose of vaccine and just one month after Team Toronto marked the administration of one million doses.
As of yesterday evening, approximately 727,344 people have booked COVID-19 vaccination appointments at a City-run clinic.
Anyone 12 or older is encouraged to book an appointment by clicking the blue “Book a Vaccine” button on the City’s COVID-19 web page or through phone by calling the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900.

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.
Today, Team Toronto Mobile Sprint Strategy will vaccinate approximately 4,040 people at the following pop-up clinics:
The City and healthcare partners are working to operate a total of approximately 41 clinics today, including mobile teams, on-site and pop-up clinics, to vaccinate priority groups identified by the Province of Ontario’s priority framework.

Toronto, like all Ontario municipalities, is in the Shutdown Zone of the Province’s COVID-19 response framework and subject to a provincial Stay-at-Home order. Everyone in the city should be staying home except for essential reasons such as going out for groceries or exercise and being sure to stay as close to home as possible.
“Thank you to everyone on Team Toronto who has worked to administer more than two million doses and thank you to everyone who has already stepped forward to get vaccinated. This is the largest vaccination campaign in the city’s history and we know it is a marathon not a sprint. Our work to get people vaccinated is continuing today and over the coming weeks and months. Getting your shot is the right thing to do – it will protect you and your loved ones and bring this pandemic to an end.”
– Mayor John Tory
“Two million doses administered – Torontonians are taking action to help keep themselves, their loved ones, and their community safe. I want to thank the tireless efforts of our hospital, health care, and community outreach partners, who have made it possible to reach this milestone. And I want to thank every Torontonian who has stepped up to get their vaccine. Our work isn’t over yet – we’ll keep scaling up until every Toronto resident can easily access both doses of this life-saving vaccine, and we can reach a day when this pandemic is finally behind us.”
– Councillor Joe Cressy (Spadina-Fort York), Chair of the Board of Health
“Two million doses administered in Toronto is a great achievement. Thank you to Toronto health care partners, hospital partners, community agencies, Ontario Health teams, and Toronto Public Health and City of Toronto staff who have helped make this milestone possible.”
– Dr. Eileen de Villa, Medical Officer of Health
“Reaching the two million doses administered milestone is an outstanding accomplishment that would not have been possible without the full Team Toronto effort. To everyone who has already received their COVID-19 vaccine – thank you for being part of the solution. If you have yet to receive your vaccine, please book your appointment today. The sooner we all get vaccinated, the sooner we can return to all the things we miss so badly. Until we reach that day, our team will continue to work seven days per week to beat COVID-19.”
– Chief Matthew Pegg, Toronto Office of Emergency Management
