In Toronto to date, 374,631 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto. The City of Toronto is working with all healthcare partners, pharmacies and Toronto Public Health to administer as many COVID-19 vaccines as possible.

The City is currently vaccinating residents born in 1941 and earlier at three of the City-operated mass immunization clinics: Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto Congress Centre and Scarborough Town Centre. Starting today, individuals born in 1946 and earlier, are also able to book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

On March 29, City-operated vaccination clinics at Malvern Community Recreation Centre and Mitchell Field Community Centre will open to eligible seniors with confirmed appointments. A sixth clinic at The Hangar will open on April 5.

Online booking at these six City-run clinics began on Friday, March 12. As of yesterday evening, 24,818 people have booked COVID-19 vaccination appointments at a City-run clinic. Eligible seniors can book appointments online (click the dark blue “Find out if you are eligible to book” button) or by phone through the Provincial Vaccine Information Line at 1-888-999-6488. For more information about what to expect when you get a COVID-19 vaccine please visit the provincial website .

The City and healthcare partners are working to operate approximately 17 clinics today, including mobile teams and on-site vaccinations, to vaccinate priority groups identified by the Province of Ontario’s priority framework. These clinics are only vaccinating those in the priority groups who have confirmed appointments.
