Toronto hopes to set daily record with 10,000 vaccinations Sunday
The city is out to set a vaccine record on Sunday.
City officials proclaimed June 27 to be Toronto Vaccine Day on Sunday (June 27) at the Scotiabank Arena. They hope to vaccinate more than 10,000 people.
“Taking part in Toronto Vaccine Day is a win-win,” said Toronto Mayor John Tory in a statement.
“You’ll be a part of history and you’ll be protecting yourself, your family, and our city’s progress in fighting COVID-19.”
Sunday’s arena clinic, led by University Health Network and Michael Garron Hospital, will be providing first dose appointments to all people age 12 and older.
Second-dose appointments will also be available for anyone who received a Pfizer or Moderna shot prior to May 9 or AstraZeneca on or before May 1.
As of Wednesday, anyone who received their first dose of Pfizer or Moderna prior to May 30 will also be able to book an appointment at this clinic.
More than 25% of Torontonians have gotten their second vaccine dose. Appointments can be booked by residents through the dark blue “Book a Vaccine” button at toronto.ca on or by calling the provincial vaccine booking line at 1-833-943-3900.
The clinic will be administering primarily the Moderna vaccine, with Pfizer doses being allocated for those aged 12-17 with confirmed appointments.
