Pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics in hotspot communities are open around Toronto on a daily basis.
Walk-in appointments and shots are available first-come, first-serve at alternating locations depending on the day.
Because information regarding vaccine availability is rapidly changing, the City of Toronto teamed up with Vaccine Hunters Canada to help residents find appointments at city-run and pop-up vaccination clinics.
These pop-up clinics sites are now offering COVID-19 vaccines to hotspot residents and some hotspot workers age 18 and up on Tuesday, May 11:

More appointments in hotspot communities are quickly becoming available now that the provincial government has allocated more COVID-19 vaccines to hotspot postal codes beginning in early May.
Adults over the age of 18 that reside in one of the 114 hot spot neighbourhoods in Ontario can book an appointment through the province’s online booking system. Additionally, select pharmacies in Toronto and Peel Region have begun offering the Pfizer vaccine to all adults aged 18 and older.
Starting May 11, people with “at-risk” health conditions, as well as people who can’t work from home, and anyone over the age of 40, are eligible to book a vaccine through Ontario’s online system.
As of May 11, Toronto has administered 1,489,583 COVID-19 vaccine doses.
