Pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics to take place at Toronto Caribbean Carnival and other summer events this week

Toronto Public Health (TPH) continues to provide more opportunities for residents to receive COVID-19 vaccinations at summer festivals this week, including at the Toronto Caribbean Carnival.

COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be available at the following events this week:

  • Under the Stars, Regent Park, 620 Dundas St. E., Wednesday, July 27, 5 to 9 p.m.
  • Toronto Caribbean Carnival, Marilyn Bell Park, 1095 Lake Shore Blvd. W., Saturday, July 30, 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Ghana Fest Canada, Earl Bales Park, 4169 Bathurst St., Sunday, July 31, noon to 7 p.m.

Bringing COVID-19 vaccines to social and cultural events is part of Team Toronto’s ongoing equity-focused, hyper-local mobile strategy, providing accessible and convenient vaccination opportunities to residents in places where they live, work and play.

“We have world-leading vaccination rates because we’ve never stopped working to help Toronto residents get the COVID-19 vaccine dose they need. I continue to encourage everyone who has yet to do so, to follow the public health advice and get their next eligible COVID-19 vaccine,” said Mayor John Tory.

These clinics are family-friendly and will provide first, second, third, fourth and paediatric COVID-19 doses to eligible residents. Clinics operate on a walk-in basis and no appointment or health card is required. Pfizer and Moderna will be available.

All eligible residents are encouraged to get their third and fourth doses as soon as possible. As with vaccinations for other diseases, people are protected best when their COVID-19 vaccinations are up to date. COVID-19 vaccinations have been scientifically proven to lower the risk of illness, hospitalization and death while protecting people, their loved ones and the community. Residents with three doses have had the lowest rates of hospitalization, ICU admissions and death over any other level of vaccination.

More information, including location and hours of operation, is available on the City of Toronto’s COVID-19: Pop-Up Immunization Clinics webpage.
