20% of adults in Toronto fully vaccinated

As of yesterday evening, 20 per cent of Toronto residents 18 and older have received a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, officials said. To date, 2,707,340 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto.

Vaccinations at Toronto clinics are by appointment only and walk-in clients cannot be accommodated.

Yesterday, Ontario opened accelerated second dose bookings to individuals who received a first dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine on or before May 9 (previously April 18 and earlier) and people who received a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine eight weeks or more ago (previously 12 weeks or more).

Everyone age 12 years or older is encouraged to book a first dose appointment as soon as possible by clicking the blue “Book a Vaccine” button at www.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. This allows others to book an available appointment and ensures that the City and healthcare partners can vaccinate the maximum number of people every day as quickly as possible.
