A full list of clinic locations and hours can be found on the City of Toronto’s COVID-19: Pop-Up Immunization Clinics webpage.

Toronto Public Health selected locations in focused neighbourhoods, to continue to remove barriers and bring vaccines to residents in areas and settings that have low vaccination coverage and to residents who are at high risk of contracting COVID-19. Locations were chosen to facilitate easy access in places that are part of Torontonians’ everyday lives.

The clinics will operate on a walk-in basis; no registration or appointments are required. Clinics will offer first, second, third and paediatric COVID-19 vaccine doses. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be available.


“Our work to help every resident have access to the COVID-19 vaccine continues with our new Vax And Spring campaign. As our city welcomes in the season of spring and opens its doors, it is more important than ever to ensure our residents and communities are protected. Vax And Spring will provide an easily accessible and convenient way for Torontonians to get their first, second, third or paediatric vaccine. Thank you to our Team Toronto partners for bringing Vax And Spring to life.”

– Mayor John Tory

“Vax And Spring is the next campaign in our hyper-local strategy to remove barriers and ensure vaccine equity and accessibility for all Torontonians. I thank all Team Toronto partners, location and community centre hosts, and all staff and volunteers involved in bringing together yet another campaign that meets residents right in their local neighborhoods.”

– Councillor Joe Cressy (Spadina-Fort York), Chair of the Board of Health
