Toronto Public Health (TPH) continues to provide opportunities for residents ages five and older to receive COVID-19 vaccinations at festivals this summer.
TPH COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be available at the following events:
- National Bank Open, 1 Shoreham Dr., Friday, August 12, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, August 13, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Sunday, August 14, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Wheels on Danforth, 3400 Danforth Ave., Saturday, August 13, noon to 7 p.m.
Bringing COVID-19 vaccines to social and cultural events is part of Team Toronto’s ongoing equity-focused, hyper-local mobile strategy, providing accessible and convenient vaccination opportunities to residents in places where they live, work and play.
The clinics are family-friendly and will provide first, second, third, fourth and paediatric COVID-19 doses to eligible residents, including children over the age of five and adults. Clinics operate on a walk-in basis, and no appointment or health card is required. Pfizer and Moderna will be available.
Eligible residents are encouraged to get their third and fourth doses as soon as possible. As with vaccinations for other diseases, people are protected best when their COVID-19 vaccinations are up to date. COVID-19 vaccinations have been scientifically proven to lower the risk of illness, hospitalization and death while protecting people, their loved ones and the community.
More information, including location and hours of operation, is available on the City’s COVID-19: Pop-Up Immunization Clinics webpage.
