Toronto Public Health (TPH) continues to work hard with Team Toronto health and community partners to offer hyper-local COVID-19 vaccine opportunities to residents. TPH and Team Toronto partners have added eight clinics in the northwest part of the city for the month of June to augment vaccination opportunities for residents who live, work and play in these neighbourhoods.
TPH and Team Toronto offers COVID-19 vaccines in places that are most convenient for residents, with a focus on neighbourhoods with low vaccine uptake. The following mobile clinics are being held in June, in Toronto’s northwest neighbourhoods:
Clinics will operate by appointment or walk-in to provide first, second, third, fourth and paediatric doses of COVID-19 vaccine to eligible residents. An Ontario health card is not required. Clinic information, including location addresses and hours of operation, is available on the City’s COVID-19: Where to Get Vaccinated webpage.
Also of note, the City-run immunization clinic located at Woodbine Mall will be moved to Crossroads Plaza (2625 Weston Rd.) to better serve the needs of the community. The clinic located at Woodbine Mall will close on Wednesday, June 8 and Crossroads Plaza clinic will open on Monday, June 13. The clinic will operate by appointment or walk-in from Mondays to Thursdays, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. First, second, third, fourth and paediatric doses of the COVID-19 vaccine is available to eligible residents, and an Ontario health card is not required.
In addition to these eight mobile clinics, first, second, third and fourth doses are also available to residents by appointment or walk-in across the six City immunization clinics. Residents can also get their doses at more than 525 local pharmacies that are offering the COVID-19 vaccine, Indigenous-led vaccination clinics, select primary care offices and other Team Toronto health care partner clinics. More information is available on the City’s COVID-19: Where to Get Vaccinated webpage.
TPH encourages residents to receive all of their eligible COVID-19 doses, including booster doses for the best protection against serious illness linked to this virus. Data shows that residents who have received all of their eligible COVID-19 doses on time were better protected against serious consequences linked to the virus, when compared to those who were unvaccinated or under vaccinated.
As COVID-19 continues to circulate in the community, residents are encouraged to practice public health measures including getting vaccinated, wearing a high-quality, well-fitting mask, especially indoors and based on the setting and situation, and staying home if feeling unwell. More information is available on the City’s COVID-19: Reduce Virus Spread Guide webpage.
“Our COVID-19 vaccination efforts are continuing to help residents get the vaccine doses they need to make sure they have the best protection possible. Thank you to all members of Team Toronto who are helping residents get vaccinated and thank you to residents who are continuing to step forward.”
– Mayor John Tory
“Getting all of your eligible COVID-19 vaccines on time is the best way to protect yourself and everyone around you against serious illness linked to this virus. Thank you to all of our Team Toronto partners who continue to work hard to bring vaccination opportunities to where residents live, work, study, and play in all parts of our city. These new clinic opportunities are another great example of the work underway to protect our communities.”
– Dr. Eileen de Villa, Medical Officer of Health
