COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be available at the following events this week:
•       TIFF at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Theatre, 350 King Street 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.

•       Constantine Yorkville Run, 61 Davenport Rd. (Jesse Ketchum Public School), September 11, 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

More than 35 clinic opportunities are available across Toronto this weekend:
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 available by appointment or walk-in at the six City-run COVID-19 immunization clinics. More information and details about clinic locations and hours are 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.
