Pfizer, Moderna and the new Moderna Spikevax® Bivalent (50 mcg) COVID-19 vaccines will be available to those who meet the provincial eligibility criteria. More information is available on the City of Toronto’s COVID-19: Vaccine Eligibility & Doses webpage.

The City’s COVID-19: Where to Get Vaccinated webpage has a complete list of clinic locations and hours. Residents looking to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at a participating pharmacy can use the provincial website Opens in new window to find the nearest location.

 

All residents are encouraged to get their next dose of vaccine when they are eligible. 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. A fall booster dose is recommended for all persons aged 18 and older, regardless of previous doses. COVID-19 activity is expected to increase this fall/winter. The bivalent vaccine may better protect against Omicron variants and will provide additional protection this fall.
