The Team Toronto vaccination initiative continues to make progress in the fight against the pandemic. As of yesterday evening, 20 per cent of Toronto residents 18 and older have received a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
The City of Toronto is working non-stop with its healthcare partners, pharmacies and Toronto Public Health to administer all available COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 2,707,340 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Toronto.
Vaccinations at City clinics are by appointment only and walk-in clients cannot be accommodated.
Yesterday, the Province opened accelerated second dose bookings to individuals who received a first dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine on or before May 9 (previously April 18 and earlier) and people who received a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine eight weeks or more ago (previously 12 weeks or more).
