Booking An Appointment Without Internet Access
Residents who are a part of the current priority group (people who are 50 years of age and older, or turn 50 in 2021) without access to a computer or internet can book an appointment at a City-operated vaccination centre by phone through the provincial call centre, 1-888-999-6488.
Booking An Appointment With Internet Access
If you are part of a current priority group (people who are 50 years of age and older, or turn 50 in 2021) and have access to a computer or the internet, you can book an appointment at a City-operated vaccination centre through the following steps:
- Access the booking system by going to www.toronto.ca/COVID19 and clicking on the button that says "Book a Vaccine." This will take you into the initial registration system.
- Follow the instructions and complete all information in the form.
- You will need to enter the information found on your photo Health Card, birthdate, postal code, and contact information including email address and/or phone number.
- The system will verify your eligibility to book an appointment for vaccination, based on this information, and will then take you to the scheduling system.
- You will then be able to enter your Postal Code to find the closest available clinic location, or you can choose to scroll through all the available appointment options.
- You will be able to see all of the available appointment dates and times, and will be able to select the available appointment that you prefer.
- You are free to select whichever appointment date and time, in whichever clinic you choose.
- Once you select and confirm your first dose appointment, you will also be asked to select the date and time for your second dose appointment.
- Once you have selected and confirmed both your first and second dose appointments, you will receive a confirmation number and a QR code as confirmation of booking.
- Your confirmed information will also be sent to you via email and by text message, if you provided both an email address and phone number during the registration process.
- You will not need to bring this information with you to the clinic on the day of your appointment, as clinic staff will be able to locate your appointment by looking up your information when you arrive on your scheduled date and time.
- Please bring a piece of ID and your respiration number with you to your appointment.
- The system will not permit anyone to schedule multiple appointments – you will only be able to schedule one set of first and second-dose appointments per person.
We recognize that it may be challenging for individuals who have mobility or other health issues to navigate through the clinics. There will be plenty of seating available and elders are permitted to bring in a caregiver, provided they pass the screening as well.
Starting April 1st, 2021, in addition to the City’s mass COVID-19 immunization clinics, select pharmacies across the City are booking appointments for AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines for eligible people ages 40 or older in 2021. You must have an appointment to get vaccinated at a participating pharmacy. Before booking, ensure you are 40 years old or older in 2021, and have a valid Ontario health (OHIP) card, or another form of valid government-issued identification. To contact a participating pharmacy near you to book an appointment, please visit this website: covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations
3. Hospital Immunization Clinics
**Important updates as of April 15th: Please be advised that due to vaccine supply challenges, Unity Health’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics at St. Joseph’s and St. Michael’s will not be open for first dose appointments until at least April 26. Existing appointments will NOT be cancelled, but may be changed to accommodate new clinic hours.
Toronto hospitals and their partner Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are accepting pre-registrations from priority populations, regardless of age. View the City of Toronto website here to check if you are part of a priority population. Priority populations include (but are not limited to):
- Frontline health care workers in high/very high/highest risk groups
- residents, staff and essential caregivers in long term care homes, retirement homes and assisted living
- First Nations, Métis, and Inuit adults (aged 16 or older)
- Faith leaders
- Transplant recipients and those receiving active cancer treatment
- Adults receiving chronic home care
People from these priority groups can now go to www.vaccineto.ca to access the pre-registration or appointment booking systems for sites near to them. You can also call 1-888-385-1910 for assistance to complete pre-registration forms and book appointments at local vaccine clinics operated by participating hospitals and Ontario Health Teams (OHTs).
4. Vaccine Hot-Spots and Pop-Up Clinics
During the first week of April 2021, the Province of Ontario announced that vaccines would be made available to all residents aged 18-49 within specific hotspot postal codes (but they did not confirm a date of when this would be in effect). The list of neighbourhoods was identified by the Province of Ontario as areas with ongoing and historic high rates of COVID-19 transmission, hospitalization, and death. In Ward 13 those zones are M4X, M5A, and M5B.
As of Friday, April 9th, residents aged 50 and older in those high-risk areas (M4X, M5A, and M5B) are able to book vaccine appointments at City-run clinics. Bookings for City Vaccination Clinics are available online at https://covid19.ontariohealth.ca/
For Residents Aged 18-49 - there are currently two pop-up vaccination clinics in Ward 13:
- Regent Park – 40 Oaks (Fred Victor) – 40 Oak St.
- St. James Town – Wellesley Community Centre – 495 Sherbourne St
Both of these locations are booking vaccines for residents aged 18-49 in the following postal codes: M4X, M5A, M5B, and M4Y. These are both operated by Unity Health and can be booked online.
The two pop-ups at 40 Oak St and Wellesley Community center should be considered a high-need, acute setting. It does not have the capacity to do the mass vaccination that the city-operated clinics do. As such, appointments at 40 Oak St and Wellesley Community center have been regularly fully booked.
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 vaccination implementation strategy for residents aged 18-49, and we anticipate more pop-up and mobile clinics in hot spots to open shortly. When clinics are available, local residents will be informed through flyers and building memos in order to help manage the limited supply.
