A total of 2,750,172 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered so far in Toronto, the city said on Wednesday.

As of last night, around 796,859 people had made appointments for COVID-19 vaccines at clinics run by the city.

In response to an unprecedented demand for second shots, the city added 30,000 clinic appointments for the period June 22-27. Appointments became available from 8 a.m. this morning.

The city says these new slots will be reserved for the Moderna vaccine. This is the first time that the city has exclusively offered Moderna rather than Moderna or Pfizer in its clinics.

As of Monday, the province opened expedited second-dose reservations to people who received a first dose of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine by May 9 and to people who received a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine eight weeks ago or more.

The city is encouraging all people aged 12 and over to make an appointment for vaccination as soon as possible by clicking the blue “Reserve a vaccine” button on the Toronto COVID-19 website or by phone by calling the line provincial vaccine reservation at 1-833-943-3900.
