Toronto Public Health (TPH) is hosting pop-up vaccination clinics this summer across Toronto in partnership with many festivals and special events. This is part of Team Toronto’s ongoing efforts to continue to bring COVID-19 vaccination opportunities to places residents live, work and play.

The first summer vaccination clinics can be found at:

  • Toronto Beaches RibFest at Woodbine Park, 1695 Queen St. E. Friday, June 24, 4 to 8 p.m., Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26, noon to 7 p.m.
  • Youth Vaccine Outreach Event at Dentonia Park, 80 Thyra Ave., Friday, June 24, 5 to 8 p.m.
  • Toronto Fiesta Extravaganza at Albert Campbell Square, 150 Borough Dr., Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

These family-friendly and youth-friendly clinics will provide first, second, third, fourth and children’s COVID-19 doses to eligible residents age five and older on a walk-in basis, with no appointments or health card required. Pfizer and Moderna will be offered by TPH nurses who will also answer COVID-19 and vaccine-related questions.

Residents can also get vaccinated at City-run immunization clinics, primary care offices and over 525 pharmacies. A complete list of clinic locations and hours is available on the City’s COVID-19: Where to Get Vaccinated webpage. To find a pharmacy to get a COVID-19 vaccine, residents can use the provincial webpage.

All eligible residents are encouraged to get their third and fourth dose as soon as possible. As with vaccines for other diseases, people are protected best when they stay up to date. COVID-19 vaccines have been scientifically proven to lower the risk of illness, hospitalization and death while protecting oneself, loved ones and the community. Residents with three doses had the lowest rates of hospitalization, ICU and death over any other level of vaccination.


“Team Toronto is working with summer festivals and event organizers to continue our world-leading efforts to help residents get vaccinated against COVID-19. Thank you to everyone who will step forward this weekend to get vaccinated, and thank you to everyone who helps make these easily accessible clinics possible. Getting vaccinated helps protect our progress and is the best way to help ensure everyone has a safe and happy summer.”

– Mayor John Tory

“Thank you to Team Toronto for continuing to make vaccines accessible by bringing clinics to where people live, work, and play. While enjoying the incredible festivals and events that our city offers, I encourage everyone to get all the COVID-19 vaccine doses they’re eligible for as soon as possible. Have a safe and pleasant summer, and make it even safer by taking advantage of the opportunity to get vaccinated at one of our summertime pop-up clinics.”

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

“Thank you to Toronto’s festivals and event organizers for stepping up to help us bring convenient vaccination opportunities to residents across our city. Staying up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines is the best way to protect you and your loved ones from serious illness linked to the virus. We need to continue to work together to protect each other.”

– Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health
