Here's where you can get a COVID-19 booster in Toronto

Jan 7 2022, 7:46 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 reopened as millions of Ontarians became eligible for their booster dose.

In light of Omicron, it’s more important than ever to get a booster for an extra layer of protection against severe outcomes of COVID-19.

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 shot in Toronto:

City-run vaccination clinics

Torontonians can choose from five different City-run clinics when trying to book their COVID-19 booster dose.
