Team Toronto has administered more than 400,000 fourth doses of COVID-19 vaccine. In total, Team Toronto has administered more than 7.4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine since the start of the vaccination campaign. All COVID-19 vaccine data is available on the Toronto Public Health (TPH) Vaccine Dashboard.

TPH continues its hyper-local equity-focused mobile vaccination campaign this weekend at the following locations:

  • Toronto Diversity Festival, Nathan Philips Square, 100 Queen St. W., Saturday, August 27, 1:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Sinting Fest on Eglinton West, Little Jamaica, Eglinton Street West between Marlee Avenue and Dufferin Street, Saturday, August 27, 12:30 to 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 28, 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The clinics are family-friendly and will provide first, second, third, fourth and paediatric COVID-19 doses to eligible residents, including children five and older. Clinics will operate on a walk-in basis and no appointment or health card is required. Pfizer and Moderna will be available.

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. More information on event clinics is available on the City of Toronto’s COVID-19: Pop-Up Immunization Clinics webpage.

COVID-19 vaccinations are also available by appointment or walk-in at six City-run COVID-19 immunization clinics. In response to vaccine demand, the COVID-19 immunization clinic located at 1940 Eglinton Ave. E. will be moving to 1 Eglinton Sq. The last day of operation at 1940 Eglinton Ave. E. is Saturday, August 27. The first day of operation at 1 Eglinton Sq. will be Saturday, September 3, and this location will be open Tuesday to Friday, noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed Sunday and Monday).

Residents can also get COVID-19 vaccinations at Indigenous-led vaccination clinics, select primary care offices and other Team Toronto health care partner clinics.
