Toronto Dragon Festival

Starting this Saturday, September 3, Toronto Public Health (TPH) will bring COVID-19 vaccination clinics to the Toronto Dragon Festival. A pop-up clinic will also shine with the stars at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) next Thursday, September 8.

This week, COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be at the following events:
•       International Overdose Awareness Day, Toronto Metropolitan University campus, Gould Street between Bond Street and Victoria Street, today from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
•       Toronto Dragon Festival, Nathan Philips Square, 100 Queen St. W., September 3 and 4, noon to 7 p.m.
•       TIFF at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Theatre, 350 King St. W., September 8 to 13, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and September 14 to 18 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
•       Canadian National Exhibition, Enercare Centre near 100 Princes’ Blvd., today to Monday, September 5 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

TPH mobile clinics provide first, second, third, fourth and paediatric COVID-19 doses to eligible residents age five and older on a walk-in basis, with no appointment or health card required. Pfizer and Moderna will be offered by TPH nurses who will also answer COVID-19 vaccine-related questions.

All eligible residents are encouraged to get their third and fourth doses as soon as possible. As with vaccinations for other diseases, people are protected best when their COVID-19 vaccinations are up to date. COVID-19 vaccinations have been scientifically proven to lower the risk of illness, hospitalization and death, while protecting people, their loved ones and the community.

COVID-19 vaccinations are also available by appointment or walk-in at the six City-run COVID-19 immunization clinics. More information and details about clinic locations and hours is available on the City’s COVID-19: Where to Get Vaccinated webpage: Residents can also get their COVID-19 doses at local pharmacies, select primary care offices and other Team Toronto health care partner clinics.
