Where to get vaccinated – Toronto has numerous vaccination clinics open through the Holiday season

Team Toronto is working hard to offer opportunities for all residents to get their first, second or third (booster) dose of COVID-19 vaccine over the holidays. To make it as convenient as possible for all eligible Torontonians to get vaccinated, there will be a number of clinic options Saturday, December 25 through Monday, December 27.

As of today, the City of Toronto can confirm the following clinics will be open, with more to come. For additional clinics and the most up-to-date information, check the City’s COVID-19: Where to Get Vaccinated webpage.

“Team Toronto is working at wartime speed to help people get their third COVID-19 vaccine dose and to add new vaccine appointments. Thank you to everyone on Team Toronto who are working through the holidays to make sure our progress on delivering booster doses continues,” said Mayor John Tory.

Approximately 6,662 new vaccine appointments at City-run immunization clinics will be added to the provincial booking system at 8 a.m. today for December 25, 26, and 27.

“Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day. Weekdays and weekends. Every minute, every hour. Our Team Toronto network of pharmacies, hospitals, and City-run clinics is scaling up our vaccine booster campaign and working through the holidays,” said Toronto Councillor Joe Cressy (Spadina-Fort York), Chair of the Toronto Board of Health. “And we won’t stop until everyone in our city has the chance to get vaccinated,” added Cressy.

As of this week, residents 18 and older who received their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine at least three months (84 days) ago are eligible to book a third dose. The City encourages eligible residents to book appointments as soon as possible to receive their third dose by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 (TTY 1-866-797-0007). Learn more on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage. 

In addition to these clinics, more than 515 pharmacies across Toronto are offering first, second and third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. For a full list of participating pharmacies visit the Ontario pharmacy map. 

Vaccination appointments generally take less than 30 minutes from start to finish. City-run clinics are easily accessible by transit and offer free parking on site. Clinic staff are also able to provide resources in multiple languages. A person with a vaccination appointment can also bring a support person to help with translation. More information on City-operated immunization clinic transportation options and on-site amenities is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage. :

Given the emergence of the new Omicron variant and ongoing community transmission of the Delta variant, TPH urges eligible residents to book their third-dose appointment as soon as possible, to ensure they have an extra layer of protection as people seek to reconnect over the holidays. Residents who have not yet gotten their first or second COVID-19 vaccine shot are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. The vaccine has been scientifically proven to lower the risk of serious illness, hospitalization and death, while protecting oneself, loved ones and the community from getting sick.

“Thank you Team Toronto for your continued hard work to offer all residents convenient opportunities to get their first, second or third dose of COVID-19 vaccine over the holidays. Your commitment to protect all residents in our city is truly remarkable. I encourage everyone to get your COVID-19 vaccines if you have not already to help us to protect each other and our city against this virus.”– Dr. Eileen de Villa, Medical Officer of Health

TPH is reminding residents to continue to follow public health measures such as mask wearing, good hand hygiene and physical distancing. Residents are urged to keep their in-person social circle small and limited to vaccinated individuals as much as possible. Those who have symptoms of COVID-19, are asked to stay at home and get tested.
