Dec 20 2021, 5:01 pm

With Ontario’s COVID-19 booster rollout underway, Toronto has ramped up vaccine capacity across the city.

In an effort to get as many vaccines in arms as quickly as possible, the City has reactivated mass vaccination clinics. The clinics reopen as millions of Ontarians become eligible for their booster dose.

Toronto Public Health estimates that in Toronto alone, more than 1 million people became eligible for their booster dose on Monday.

“Over the last week, Team Toronto’s total capacity to administer vaccinations has gone from 400,000 doses per month to more than 1.2 million doses per month,” a statement from the City reads.

There will be five City-run mass vaccination clinics, alongside hospital clinics, more than 500 participating pharmacies and provincial health teams.

Here’s where you can get your COVID-19 booster in Toronto:
