Toronto shortens COVID-19 vaccine clinic opening hours over the summer

Toronto will cut hours at the city-run immunization clinics during the summer.

According to Toronto Public Health, the new opening hours will begin on Monday and will affect all six active clinics offering the COVID-19 vaccine. In a post on social media, officials said the changes will “meet the needs of Toronto residents throughout the summer.”

These are the new hours:

· At Metro Hall and Crossroads Plaza, the clinics are open Monday through Thursday from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM and on Sundays from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

· At Cloverdale Mall, Mitchell Field Community Center and 1940 Eglinton Avenue, clinics are open Tuesday through Friday from noon to 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

· At Thorncliffe Park Community Hub, the clinic is open both Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM and from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

All clinics offer first, second and third doses, as well as fourth doses for selected eligible groups.

Residents can make an appointment via the provincial booking portal or call center.

Students in grades 7 to 12 can also make appointments at these clinics for in-school vaccinations, such as those for hepatitis B, HPV, and meningococcal diseases.

About 51.7 percent of all eligible Toronto residents have received three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
