Toronto begins "Days of Vaxtion" program of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics

·1 min read

TORONTO — The City of Toronto and its health partners are launching a series of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics.

Mayor John Tory says the so-called "Days of Vaxtion" will start on Thursday.

Tory says the campaign is part of the city's plan to help residents get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as quickly as possible.

The clinic locations were selected in an effort to bring vaccines to residents in areas that have low vaccination coverage.

The city says they were also chosen to facilitate easy access in locations that are part of Torontonians' everyday lives.

Toronto Public Health, the Toronto Transit Commission, Black Creek Humber Summit, Humber River Hospital, Michael Garron Hospital, North York General Hospital, Sherbourne Health, and Unity Health are among the organizations partnering with the city on the program.

The city's chief medical officer of health, Dr. Eileen de Villa, has said the goal is to have 90 per cent of eligible Torontonians fully vaccinated.
