Eligible seniors are able to book a vaccination appointment here. If they are unable to book online, those 75+ are able to call the Provincial Vaccination Hotline at 1-888-999-6488. The city is currently only operating three vaccine clinics at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Scarborough Town Centre and Toronto Congress Centre. In an effort to keep up with the expansion, the daily vaccine dose will be increasing from 1,350 to 4,320.
As the city nears expanding the eligible age-range, they will be opening up three more vaccination clinics. On Monday, March 29, City-operated vaccination clinics at Malvern Community Recreation Centre and Mitchell Field Community Centre will open. A sixth clinic at The Hangar will open on Monday, April 5.
