Just as we’ve been updating you daily since March 2020 about COVID-19 cases in Toronto, toronto.com will now track every COVID-19 vaccine administered in the city.
To date, Toronto Public Health reports that 436,443 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered.
The province has prioritized who gets the vaccine in a three-phase rollout:
- Phase 1 (December 2020 to March 2021): Residents, staff, essential caregivers and other employees in collective living environments for the elderly; health workers, including hospital employees, personnel working or studying in hospitals and health personnel; adults from First Nations, Métis and Inuit populations; and adults receiving chronic home health care.
- Phase 2 (March to July 2021): About 8.5 million people from groups such as the elderly, people living and working in high-risk gathering places like shelters, frontline workers, people with high-risk chronic diseases and their caregivers and others facing barriers related to the determinants of health in Ontario that are at higher COVID-19.
- Phase 3 (August 2021 and beyond, depending on vaccine availability): The remaining Ontarians in the general population who wish to be vaccinated will receive it.
Ontario also administered vaccines across the province. Below are the provincial figures, updated daily by the Toronto Star, the sister branch of toronto.com.
