TORONTO, ON, January 29, 2022 – This weekend, thousands of Toronto residents will receive first, second and third doses of COVID-19 vaccine, joining the millions of Torontonians who have already been vaccinated against the virus and its variants.
Today and tomorrow, residents are invited to book an appointment or walk in to Scarborough Health Network’s Family Rollcall Vax Weekend happening at three locations across Scarborough from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Clinics are open to all eligible individuals regardless of postal code. Find all of the need-to-know details at ScarbVaccine.ca .
Team Toronto’s continuing vaccination efforts have now resulted in more than 90 per cent of eligible Toronto residents age 12 and older having received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Since the threat of the highly-transmissible Omicron variant first arrived, more than 1.3 million people in Toronto have rolled up their sleeves to receive a third dose and added layer of protection against COVID-19.
Team Toronto continues to offer many opportunities for residents to receive a first, second or third dose. More information on the hundreds of vaccination options is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage.
Toronto Public Health urges those eligible to receive a third dose of vaccine to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible. Any residents who have not yet received their first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine are also encouraged to do so as soon as possible. COVID-19 vaccines lower the risk of serious illness, hospitalization and death, while protecting oneself, loved ones and the community.
Today, Team Toronto partners will administer thousands of vaccines at City-run clinics, hospital partner clinics, more than 525 local pharmacies and doctors’ offices, including the following clinic locations:
