There are pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics in hotspot communities around Toronto on a daily basis. Appointments and shots are available on a walk-in, first come first serve, basis at locations that change depending on the day.
Because information regarding vaccine availability is rapidly changing the City of Toronto teamed up with teamed up Vaccine Hunters Canada in an effort to help residents find appointments at city-run and pop-up vaccination clinics.

Pop-up clinics often operate until their supplies run out, which has left some residents waiting in long lines and out of luck at the end of the day.
More appointments in hotspot communities may soon become available now that the provincial government said it plans to allocate more COVID-19 vaccines to hotspot postal codes in early May.
Ontario health officials have also said the province plans to expand eligibility to all adults over the age of 18 by the end of May.
As of April 30, Toronto has administered 1,150,918 COVID-19 vaccine doses.
