TPH is hosting a vaccination clinic at the Blue Jays game against the New York Yankees on Saturday, June 18 at Rogers Centre. The clinic is part of Team Toronto’s ongoing efforts to help residents stay up-to-date with all of their eligible doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

This family-friendly vaccine clinic will run from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. on the south east side of Rogers Centre outside gates 6 and 6A on Bremner Blvd. The clinic will provide COVID-19 vaccines to eligible residents age five and older on a walk-in basis with no health card required.

First, second, third and fourth doses are also available by appointment or walk-in across five 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.

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.
