There is good news to share on the roll out of third doses of COVID-19 vaccine here in Toronto.
A news release from Team Toronto says, as of January 2nd, 37-percent of eligible city residents have received a third shot.
Currently, across the province, anyone 18 or older is eligible for a third dose at least 84 days after a second dose.
Third doses are being offered at city run clinics and pharmacies, mostly by appointment by logging onto the provincial portal, ontario.ca/covid19.
More information on City-operated immunization clinic transportation options and on-site amenities is available on the City’s COVID-19: How to Get Vaccinated webpage: www.toronto.ca/home/covid-19/covid-19-vaccines/covid-19-how-to-get-vaccinated/.
Michael Garron Hospital has a number of vaccination opportunities which do not require appointments. There are three pop up clinics of note; at Diefenbaker Elementary school from 4 to 8pm, Don Mills Middle School from 3:30 to 8pm and Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School from 2 to 8pm.
