Toronto hits 6 million vaccines milestone, list of clinics here

92

More than six million COVID-19 vaccine doses have now been administered by Team Toronto as the progress to help residents of all ages get vaccinated continues.

This six million dose milestone comes just over a year after the arrival of the first COVID-19 vaccine in December 2020.

Toronto has increased its total vaccination capacity to more than 1.2 million doses per month through the City-run clinics, hospital partner clinics, more than 525 local pharmacies and doctors’ offices.

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.

While City-run clinics and health care partners across the province await further shipments of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine later this month, as of today, January 6, 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. More information on City-operated immunization clinic transportation options and on-site amenities is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage: www.toronto.ca/home/covid-19/covid-19-vaccines/covid-19-how-to-get-vaccinated/.
