“Team Toronto’s efforts to help residents of every age get vaccinated against COVID-19 have been non-stop, and this is another great opportunity for those age 65 and older to receive their next eligible dose. We’ve come a long way as a city, and I urge residents to continue doing their part to protect themselves and those around them by getting vaccinated as soon as possible,” Toronto mayor John Tory states.
Torontonians who are unvaccinated are encouraged to book an appointment to receive the next available dose of the COVID vaccine. A Health card is not required for appointments, but a mask is necessary to ensure the recipient’s safety, as vaccination clinics are considered health care settings.
