Today, Mayor John Tory announced that the Team Toronto vaccination initiative has now administered first doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to more than 75 per cent of Toronto adults and second doses to more than 25 per cent of adults.
These major milestones – including having one in four adults fully vaccinated – mark important progress as Team Toronto works to get as many residents vaccinated as possible to fight COVID-19 and the Delta variant.
The City is working non-stop with its healthcare partners, pharmacies and Toronto Public Health to administer all available COVID-19 vaccines – including a focus on in-home second doses of vaccines for vulnerable homebound Torontonians in their place of residence.
To date, 2,911,071 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto as part of the overall Team Toronto initiative. As of yesterday evening, approximately 808,876 people have booked COVID-19 vaccination appointments at a City-operated clinic.
Everyone age 12 or older is encouraged to book their vaccination appointment as soon as possible by clicking the blue “Book a Vaccine” button at toronto.ca/covid-19 or through phone by calling the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900. Anyone who cannot attend a scheduled appointment is urged to cancel or reschedule to allow others to book. Appointments at City-run clinics can be cancelled or changed on the Province’s Manage Your Appointment(s) webpage or by calling the provincial booking line.
Yesterday, the City opened 30,000 new vaccination appointments, accessible through toronto.ca/covid-19 or by calling the provincial vaccination booking line at 1-833-943-3900 (TTY 1-866-797-0007). Vaccinations at City clinics are by appointment only and walk-in clients cannot be accommodated.
