TORONTO, ON, January 11, 2022 – Beginning January 12, 2022, you will be able to book your booster at the most recently added Toronto mass vaccination clinic – Your Toronto Zoo!
Although the zoo continues to remain closed to those wishing to visit the animals or Terra Lumina, In partnership with FH Health, the Toronto Zoo is proud to be supporting this initiative that will add more than 5,000 daily jabs to the Province’s booster campaign.
“The last mile is always the hardest,” says Melody Adhami, President of FH Health. “Our job is to make it as easy as possible for Ontarians to get boosted and that means working hand in hand with the Province and the incredible team at the Toronto Zoo.”
“Your Toronto Zoo plays a vital role in supporting our community, and one of the best ways we can do that right now is by offering our Zoo as a mass booster vaccination location” says Dolf DeJong, Chief Executive Officer of the Toronto Zoo. “We are committed to supporting measures that will keep our community healthy and safe, and one of the best ways for us to do that right now is by hosting thousands of Ontarians here to get their booster shot.”
The clinic will start on January 12, 2022 and run seven days a week. Appointments are required in advance and can be booked at fhvax.com.
“By bringing vaccines directly to the people through mass vaccination clinics like the one at the Toronto Zoo, we are helping more residents get the protection they need for themselves, their families and their communities,” said Solicitor General Sylvia Jones. “I urge everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated whether it’s your first, second or booster shot, and advise that we continue to follow public health guidance.”
Education and child care staff will be prioritized at the mass vaccination site at the Toronto Zoo. Priority time slots will be made available to education and child care staff outside of school hours. A special booking link is available on fhvax.com for education and child care staff to access.
“Our team has been working around the clock to make this happen. I’m grateful to everyone along the long supply chain that makes this work. All I can say is when you see the relief in people’s eyes once they get their boost, that’s what makes it worth it. That’s what we’re here for.” says Adhami.
