Vaccination Updates/Resources

In Ward 13, the only places we are aware of that are booking vaccine appointments for people under 50 who do not need to meet any other Phase 2 criteria are 40 Oak St in Regent Park and Wellesley Community Centre in St James Town. These are both operated by Unity Health and can be booked online.

Some confusion over the weekend was about the exact eligibility criteria for the pop-up clinics. It is confirm that 40 Oak St and Wellesley Community Centre are booking vaccines for residents aged 18-49 in the following postal codes M4X, M5A, M5B, and M4Y.

 

Currently, they are only booking 7 days in advance and all bookings for the next week are full. They are working quickly to increase capacity. If there are no appointments available when you try to book, new appointments will be added every Thursday at 7 p.m. 

 

The City of Toronto continues to work on its own vaccination implementation strategy for residents aged 18-49, and we anticipate more pop-up and mobile clinics in hot spots to open shortly
