From today all nine City of Toronto vaccination clinics will be offering walk-in vaccinations for anyone age 12 and older needing a first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine between noon and 7 pm. By lowering the barrier to vaccination, Toronto is working to reach the approximately 20 per cent of adults who have not initiated vaccination and the 125,000 people who can accelerate a second dose scheduled for later in the year.
Eligible residents who need a second dose and those who have yet to receive a first dose can be vaccinated immediately. Anyone taking advantage of the walk-in option to accelerate their second dose should cancel any existing second dose appointment, whether at a City-run or partner clinic. Walk-ins should always prepare for a short wait that may include time lining up outdoors.
The Toronto Congress Centre vaccination clinic opened to adult-only walk-ins on July 8. On the first day accepting walk-ins, more than 300 people attended the clinic, prompting the City to open three additional clinics to build on that success.
