Hundreds of volunteers administered nearly 27,000 COVID-19 vaccines on Sunday at a mass clinic at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, in what the city calls a new North American record.Mayor John Tory was one of 26,771 people who received a shot during the “Our Winning Shot” event at the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors arenas.
The city said it broke the previous record around 8 p.m. when 17,004 doses had been administered. Texas held the record with 17,003 injections administered at a drive-thru clinic on April 30.
The clinic operated late in the evening and offered walk-in appointments for the last few hours.
Adults received the Moderna vaccine, while adolescents aged 12 to 17 received Pfizer.
