Toronto announced today that approximately 22,700 appointments are available at city-run clinics from now through February 19, including 3,479 appointments for this coming Sunday, January 23, and Monday, January 24.

This Sunday, January 23, the city will also be holding Vax The Northwest, a mass vaccination event at York University’s Aviva Centre in Northwest Toronto, focused on vaccinating people from northwest Toronto neighbourhoods that experience lower vaccination rates.

Given the continued spread of the Omicron variant, Toronto Public Health is urging all eligible residents to book third-dose appointment. Residents who have not yet received their first or second COVID-19 vaccine shot are encouraged to do so as soon as possible.

The five city-run immunization clinics continue to add new appointments for first, second and third doses of COVID-19 vaccine. To book an appointment, click the blue “Book a Vaccine” button on www.toronto.ca/covid-19 or call 1-833-943-3900.

City-run clinics are easily accessible by transit and offer free parking on site. Clinic staff are also able to provide resources in multiple languages. A person with a vaccination appointment can also bring a support person to help with translation, officials said.

All City of Toronto-run clinics will administer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to residents 30 years of age and older.

People with vaccination appointments are asked to arrive no more than 10 minutes early to vaccination clinics. There will be vaccine doses available for everyone who has an appointment; arriving earlier than necessary does not impact availability. There are no walk-in appointments at City-run vaccination clinics.

Toronto has now administered third doses of COVID-19 vaccine to more than 1.2 million people, and a first dose to almost 90 per cent of eligible Torontonians age 12 and older.
