More information, including clinic locations and hours of operations, are available on the City of Toronto’s COVID-19: Pop-Up Immunization Clinics webpage: www.toronto.ca/home/covid-19/c
TPH encourages residents to stay up to date with their COVID-19 immunization, including all booster doses (third and fourth doses), for the best protection against serious illness linked to this virus. Recent data show that residents who kept up to date with their vaccinations were better protected against serious consequences linked to the virus, when compared to those who were unvaccinated or under vaccinated.
First, second, third and fourth doses are also available by appointment or walk-in across the five City immunization clinics. Residents can also get their doses at more than 525 local pharmacies that are offering the COVID-19 vaccine, Indigenous-led vaccination clinics, select primary care offices and other Team Toronto health care partner clinics.
