**AS OF MAY 23, 2021 INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE 12 AND OVER WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO BOOK A COVID 19 VACCINE APPOINTMENT AT A MASS IMMUNIZATION CLINIC. SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS.**
In light of the continued rise in COVID-19 case numbers in Ontario, we can each do our part to reduce the spread:
(1) remain vigilant with social distancing;
(2) stay home except for absolutely essential reasons;
(3) get your COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you are eligible; and
(4) seek COVID-19 testing if you are experiencing any symptoms.
We will attempt to keep this page updated with the latest information and links to enable you to access the vaccine as soon as it is available to your age/risk group. We have not received the COVID vaccine in our clinic. Please do not call us to try to book an appointment. We need to keep our phone lines free for patients with immediate medical needs.

The Moderna Vaccine is approved for all individuals 18+ years of age. It is also an mRNA based vaccine and is highly effective and safe.
Visit City of Toronto COVID: About the Vaccines for more information.
As of May 11, the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is not being administered in Ontario for patients receiving their first COVID-19 vaccine due to a rare but serious potential side effect referred to as Vaccine-Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT). The change in this guideline is primarily due to the recent increased availability of mRNA based vaccines in Ontario, which do not carry any risk for VITT.
The Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table has developed a Questions and &Answers Summary to address concerns re. VITT.
Pregnancy is a risk factor for complications from COVID-19, therefore vaccination is highly recommended.
As of April 23, pregnant patients in Ontario are now eligible for vaccination at any of the mass vaccination clinics as part of the highest priority risk category.
