City of Toronto opens The Hangar COVID-19 immunization clinic for residents age 60 years and older

Today, the City of Toronto opened its sixth City-operated COVID-19 immunization clinic at The Hangar in North York to vaccinate eligible residents age 60 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 40 immunizers at a time will work to vaccinate five people per hour per immunizer. The clinic is opening at full capacity, able to vaccinate up to 1,800 people per day pending the availability of vaccine supply. This capacity can be increased as supply from the Government of Canada allows.

As of Friday, the eligibility for COVID-19 vaccine availability at City-operated clinics was expanded to individuals born in 1961 and earlier. Residents age 60 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 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:

As Toronto awaits 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 COVID-19. Please review the City’s simple guide for recommended and mandatory public health measures under provincial regulations and City bylaws:


“This additional mass immunization clinic at The Hangar will help us vaccinate an additional 1,800 people every day with the current vaccine supply and we will be able to ramp that up as supply allows. I encourage every resident who is eligible to sign up to get their vaccine as soon as possible. We are working to get everyone vaccinated as quickly as vaccine supply allows so that we can stop COVID-19.”
– Mayor John Tory
