Torontonians 55 and up can now get vaccinated at City of Toronto immunization clinics

As of Friday, April 30 at 8 a.m., individuals born in 1966 and earlier will be eligible for vaccination at City of Toronto COVID-19 vaccination clinics. More than 215,000 Torontonians aged 55 to 59 join those age 60 and older in being able to book vaccination appointments online or by phone for City-run clinics and some Team Toronto partner clinics.

The Province also announced the Phase Two Schedule for COVID-19 Vaccine Booking Eligibility , showing the planned expansion of vaccination eligibility throughout the month of May. The City is ready to expand City-run clinic operations once vaccine availability permits.

The City of Toronto is urging everyone who is eligible to receive a vaccine to book an appointment as soon as possible. As the virus and variants of concern continue to be transmitted in Toronto, getting vaccinated protects you, your family and your community. There are appointments at City-run clinics available as early as next week for eligible groups. Individuals age 55 or older in 2021 can book appointments 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. Anyone not yet eligible to receive a vaccine, is encouraged to help those who are eligible to book an appointment.

“We are doing everything we can as a City government to help our residents get vaccinated. We are ready to ramp up the capacity of our City-run vaccination clinics as more vaccine supply becomes available in the coming weeks so that more people will be able to get vaccinated,” said Mayor John Tory. “I encourage all Toronto residents to get registered to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible,” added Tory.

All City-operated clinics are booked through the provincial booking system. Eligible individuals are able to select from available appointment times at any of the nine City-operated clinics:

  1. Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 277 Front St. W.
  2. Toronto Congress Centre, 650 Dixon Rd.
  3. Scarborough Town Centre, 300 Borough Dr. (in the old Sears store)
  4. Malvern Community Recreation Centre, 30 Sewells Rd.
  5. Mitchell Field Arena, 89 Church Ave. (west side of the complex)
  6. The Hangar, 75 Carl Hall Rd.
  7. Cloverdale Mall, 250 The East Mall
  8. North Toronto Memorial Community Centre, 200 Eglinton Ave. W.
  9. Carmine Stefano Community Centre, 3100 Weston Rd.

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. The full list of eligible groups with information on how to register for appointments at the various Team Toronto clinics is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage.

As Toronto continues the rollout of mass immunization, to reduce and eliminate the transmission of COVID-19, protect the healthcare system and save lives, the City continues to urge all residents to stay home as much as possible to help stop the spread of the virus. Please review the City’s COVID-19: Guide for Residents for recommended and mandatory public health measures under provincial regulations and City bylaws.
