The City-operated clinics are part of a vaccination network that includes four additional City-operated clinics opening soon and hundreds of clinics operated by health sector partners including hospitals and pharmacies. A sixth City-operated clinic at The Hangar will open on Monday, April 5. A map of vaccination options in Toronto is available on the City’s COVID-19: Vaccine Clinic Locations webpage: www.toronto.ca/COVID19vaccinemap.
Some of Toronto’s hospital-based COVID-19 vaccination clinics also expanded vaccines to residents age 70 and older this week. Toronto residents born in 1951 or earlier who want to be vaccinated at a participating hospital-based clinic beginning today can view their options and book through hospital-based booking systems listed at www.vaccineto.ca or by calling 1-888-385-1910.
As Toronto continues the rollout of mass immunization, to reduce and eliminate the transmission of COVID-19, protect the healthcare system and save lives, the City continues to urge all residents to stay home as much as possible to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
