Today, the City announced that it was able to add more than 17,000 new appointments spread across five City-operated clinics for the week of May 10 due to confirmed additional vaccine supply. With this added supply, City-operated clinics can administer approximately 98,000 vaccine doses between May 10 and 16.

These new appointments for next week are now available in the provincial vaccine booking system at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto Congress Centre, Mitchell Field Arena, The Hangar and Cloverdale Mall clinics.

“The City’s Immunization Task Force is working to make sure we are offering as many appointments as vaccine supply allows. As soon as additional vaccine supply was confirmed, we moved to provide these 17,000 new appointments to the public. I encourage all Toronto residents who are eligible to get vaccinated as soon as possible. The sooner we are all vaccinated, the sooner we will bring this pandemic to an end.”

– Mayor John Tory

The 17,064 new appointments can be booked by eligible residents through the dark blue “Book a Vaccine” button on toronto.ca/covid-19 or by calling the provincial vaccine booking line at 1-833-943-3900. Eligible groups include:

City-run clinics are part of the Team Toronto vaccination network that includes hundreds of clinics operated by hospitals, pharmacies and other healthcare and community partners. A full list of eligible groups with information on where and how to register for appointments is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage. Those seeking a vaccine appointment are also encouraged to register and check availability with healthcare partners through vaccineto.ca/ , local pharmacies or healthcare providers.

For the current wave of COVID-19 in Toronto, amplified by variants of concern, staying home and following public health guidance is the best way to keep everyone safe.
