Team Toronto quickly hitting summer levels of vaccines administered

In the past few days, Team Toronto has achieved dosing levels that compare to this summer and previous waves of the pandemic

In the past few days, Team Toronto has achieved dosing levels that compare to this summer and previous waves of the pandemic. From December 16 to 22, a total of 272,107 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were administered to eligible Toronto residents. This is an increase from the previous week, where Team Toronto administered 203,180 total doses. Of the doses administered in the past seven days, 92 per cent (251,462) have been third doses.

As of December 24, more than 41 per cent of children five to 11years of age in Toronto now have at least their first vaccine dose. Approximately, 89 per cent of residents 12 and older have now received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

This marks a significant increase as Team Toronto’s capacity to administer third doses improves week to week. The City of Toronto encourages eligible residents to book appointments as soon as possible to receive their third dose by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 (TTY 1-866-797-0007). Learn more on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage.  Getting your third or “booster” dose as quickly as possible helps to protect against COVID-19 virus spread, including the new Omicron variant and the circulating Delta variant.

Team Toronto and partners are offering thousands of vaccine appointments at City-run clinics, hospital partner clinics, local pharmacies and doctors’ offices, including the following clinic locations operating today:

Given the emergence of the new Omicron variant and ongoing community transmission of the Delta variant, Toronto Public Health urges all eligible residents to book their third-dose appointment to ensure they have an extra layer of protection. Residents who have not yet received their first or second COVID-19 vaccine shot are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. COVID-19 vaccines lower the risk of serious illness, hospitalization and death, while protecting oneself, loved ones and the community.

Residents should also continue to follow public health measures such as mask wearing, good hand hygiene and physical distancing. Those who have symptoms of COVID-19 are asked to stay at home and get tested as soon as possible. Learn more about COVID-19 in Toronto.
