Toronto calls for more residents to get COVID-19 shots this weekend – fr


The city of Toronto says it hopes to encourage at least 1,869 people to take advantage of COVID-19 vaccine appointments available on Monday.
The city’s long weekend to vaccinate people aged 12 and older has so far resulted in 34,300 residents receiving their first dose, according to a press release.

“Now let’s keep the momentum going,” Councilor Joe Cressy, chair of the Toronto Board of Health, said in the statement.

The city’s Long Weekend Dose Drive operates in nine city-operated clinics. According to the release, Monday appointments are more readily available at the following locations:

  • Carmine Stefano Community Center
  • Toronto Convention Center
  • Le Hangar Sport & Event Center
  • Cloverdale Mall

Anyone 12 years of age or older can book by calling the provincial line at 1-833-943-3900.

More than 60 percent of the city has now received at least a first dose of a vaccine, but the city hopes to increase that percentage even more “to support a strong and robust reopening.”

“I have no doubts that this will be our last long lockdown weekend thanks to your efforts,” Mayor John Tory said in the statement.

“If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, please get vaccinated so that we can end this pandemic. “
