Today, the City of Toronto opened its sixth City-operated COVID-19 immunization clinic at The Hangar in North York. The vaccine clinic will currently be for eligible residents age 60 years or older who have confirmed vaccination appointments.
The new clinic at The Hangar will operate seven days per week from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Teams of up to 40 immunizers at a time will work to vaccinate five people per hour per immunizer. The clinic is opening at full capacity, able to vaccinate up to 1,800 people per day pending the availability of vaccine supply. This capacity can be increased as supply from the Government of Canada allows.
“This additional mass immunization clinic at The Hangar will help us vaccinate an additional 1,800 people every day with the current vaccine supply and we will be able to ramp that up as supply allows,” said Mayor John Tory. “I encourage every resident who is eligible to sign up to get their vaccine as soon as possible. We are working to get everyone vaccinated as quickly as vaccine supply allows so that we can stop COVID-19.”
As of Friday, the eligibility for COVID-19 vaccine availability at City-operated clinics was expanded to individuals born in 1961 and earlier. Residents age 60 or older in 2021 who do not yet have an appointment are encouraged to register to book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Eligible seniors can book appointments through the dark blue “Book a Vaccine” button on www.toronto.ca/covid-19 or book by phone through the Provincial Vaccine Information Line at 1-888-999-6488 (TTY 1-866-797-0007). More information on booking options is available on the Province’s What to expect when you get a COVID-19 vaccine webpage: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/get-covid-19-vaccine#how-to-schedule-a-vaccination .
