TTC fare payment is not required to access Vax And Ride vaccination clinics at TTC subway stations. Facemasks will be required at all clinics.
These family-friendly and youth-friendly clinics will provide first and second doses, as well as booster COVID-19 doses, to eligible residents aged five and older on a walk-in basis, with no appointments or a health card required. Pfizer, Moderna and the new Moderna Spikevax® Bivalent (50 mcg) COVID-19 vaccines will be offered to those who meet the provincial eligibility criteria.
Residents can also get vaccinated at City-run immunization clinics, primary care offices and more than 525 pharmacies. A full list of participating pharmacies administering COVID-19 vaccines is available on the provincial webpage: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations.
Vaccinations for children six months to under five years of age are by appointment only at City-run immunization clinics. Residents can book an appointment online (https://covid-19.ontario.ca/book-vaccine/) or by calling the provincial booking system at 1-833-943-3900 (TTY 1-866-797-0007).
All eligible residents are encouraged to get their first and second doses, as well as booster COVID-19 doses, as soon as possible. An autumn booster dose is recommended for all persons aged 18 and older, regardless of previous doses received. As Torontonians head indoors during the colder months, the bivalent vaccine may better protect against Omicron variants and will provide additional protection. 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.
