The City of Toronto just opened two more COVID-19 immunization clinics at Malvern Community Recreation Centre (Malvern) in Scarborough and Mitchell Field Arena (Willowdale) in North York to vaccinate eligible residents age 70 years or older who have confirmed vaccination appointments.
The clinic will operate seven days per week from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Teams of up to 15 immunizers at a time will work to vaccinate five people per hour per immunizer. The clinic is opening with capacity to vaccinate 675 people per day and the capacity can be expanded as vaccine supply increases.
As of yesterday, the eligibility for COVID-19 vaccine availability at City-operated clinics was expanded to individuals born in 1951 and earlier. Nearly 22,000 new first and second dose appointments were booked at the City-run clinics yesterday. Seniors age 70 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 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 .
“The two new City-run mass immunization clinics in Scarborough and North York are an important part of the team effort that includes Toronto Public Health, our hospital and healthcare partners, and pharmacies,” said Mayor John Tory. “We are working to get everyone vaccinated as quickly as vaccine supply allows. I continue to encourage all Toronto residents who are eligible for the vaccine right now to sign up to get their shot as soon as possible,” said Mayor Tory.
