Today, Mayor John Tory announced the launch of the new Vax And Ride campaign to bring 75 COVID-19 vaccine clinics to 10 TTC stations starting today.
Vax And Ride is part of Team Toronto’s continued equity-focused, hyper-local mobile strategy to make COVID-19 vaccines as accessible and convenient as possible and to facilitate easy access in places that are part of Torontonians’ everyday lives as they travel and commute across the city.
Locations include the following TTC stations:
Over a two-week span, 75 clinics will take place in 10 subway stations across Toronto. The clinics will take place from March 28 to April 3, and from April 7 to 10. The first clinic will be held today at Dufferin Station from 12:30 to 7 p.m. A full list of clinic locations and hours can be found on the City of Toronto’s COVID-19: Pop-Up Immunization Clinics webpage.
The clinics will operate on a walk-in basis. TTC fare payment is not required. A health card is not required for vaccination. Clinics will offer first, second, third and paediatric COVID-19 vaccines. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be available.
The Vax And Ride clinics are the latest in a series of vaccination efforts held in partnership with the TTC. Since last year, the TTC has hosted 77 pop-up vaccination clinics in transit stations across the city.
“These 75 Vax And Ride clinics are an easily accessible and convenient way for Torontonians to get vaccinated. Residents can stop by any of the 10 TTC stations hosting clinics during their commute and get their first, second, third or paediatric dose. Thank you to all our Team Toronto partners and the TTC for bringing Vax and Ride to life.”
– Mayor John Tory
“Team Toronto is thrilled to return to TTC stations across the city with the launch of Vax and Ride. As part of our hyper-local, equity-focused strategy, Vax and Ride will help Torontonians easily and conveniently get vaccinated during their commute. Thank you to our partners and staff and to all residents for doing their part in getting their vaccine.”
– Councillor Joe Cressy (Spadina-Fort York), Chair of the Board of Health
“With the launch of Vax and Ride, we are once again offering Torontonians convenient opportunities to get vaccinated while riding the TTC. Whether you are travelling for work, school or play, it’s never been easier to make a stop along your commute to get your COVID-19 vaccine. I encourage anyone who hasn’t yet received their first, second or third doses to take advantage of these clinics.”
– Councillor Jaye Robinson (Don Valley West), Chair of the Toronto Transit Commission
“Now that more and more people are commuting every day, bringing vaccine back to the TTC just makes sense. Whether it’s a first, second or third dose, I encourage all eligible residents to get their vaccine dose and the essential protection it provides. Thank you to the TTC and Team Toronto vaccine partners for providing residents with continued ways to get their shot easily and conveniently.”
– Dr. Eileen de Villa, Medical Officer of Health
“The TTC is pleased to host Vax and Ride, and I encourage everyone who is eligible to get their shot at one of these ten station clinics. As the city re-opens, we are excited to welcome riders back and offer an easily accessible way to get vaccinated during your commute. The TTC will continue to work with health partners to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to get their vaccine in a convenient location.”
– Rick Leary, CEO, Toronto Transit Commission
