Last week, when the province announced their plan to open eligibility up for residents in hot spots between 18-49, they did so before communicating with the city, and without increasing the allocation of vaccines being made available. Toronto Public Health is still working on an implementation plan for that rollout with the Ministry of Health. As soon as we have more details on that, we will share that information.
So far the only places we are aware of that are booking vaccine appointments for people under 50 who do not meet any other Phase 2 criteria are 40 Oak St and Wellesley Community center. These are both operated by Unity Health and can be booked online.
I know there was some confusion over the weekend about what the exact eligibility at the pop-up clinics was. Today we were able to confirm that 40 Oak St and Wellesley Community center are booking vaccines for residents aged 18-49 in the following postal codes M4X, M4Y, M5A, and M5B.
Currently, they are only booking 7 days in advance and all bookings for the next week are full. They are working quickly to increase capacity. If there are no appointments available when you try to book, new appointments will be added every Thursday at 7 p.m.
The City of Toronto continues to work on its own vaccination implementation strategy for residents aged 18-49, and we anticipate more pop-up and mobile clinics in hot spots to open shortly.
For now, we encourage you to visit the City's website regularly for updates on eligibility and vaccine locations.
Thank you for your continued care,
