Who is responsible for distributing COVID-19 vaccines in Toronto?

All levels of government play important roles in delivering the COVID-19 vaccine to residents:

  • The federal government is responsible for approving vaccines as safe and effective for use, and for procuring the vaccines.
  • The provincial government is responsible for creating a provincial vaccination plan that includes distributing vaccines and supporting health system partners to deliver them to residents.
  • The City of Toronto will promote the importance of the vaccine, including addressing vaccine hesitancy. The City of Toronto will immunize residents through mass vaccination clinics. The City of Toronto will liaise with other agencies that will immunize their own clients to relay provincial information and coordinate immunization plans. Toronto Public Health will also investigate adverse events following immunization, and share data with the Province.
