To our community partners,

COVID-19 vaccination updates at West Toronto OHT vaccine clinics

  • The West Park Healthcare and Community Place Hub vaccine clinics:
    • First dose vaccinations: Available to Torontonians 12-17 years of age at the time of their appointment and 18 years of age and older. Book here . Walk-in appointments are also available at the Community Place Hub.
      Please note: Health Care Workers who need to book a first dose appointment can book into the 18+ category.
    • Second dose vaccinations: These clinics are moving up second dose appointments of all individuals 70 years of age and older and those who received their first dose before/on May 9 for whom they provided first doses. Those individuals will receive a communication about this through the email or phone number they provided at their first dose appointment. Please do not call or go in to the vaccination clinics to request a second dose. Appointments will be moved up on a “first-in, first-out” basis, as vaccine supply allows.
    • Bookable second dose vaccinations available: Those who have not been able to attain an accelerated second dose and meet the below eligibility criteria are able to book in at West Park and Community Place Hub using the online booking tool here:

      • those who received their first dose before/on May 9
      • individuals who live, work or attend school in these designated hot spot postal codes in Toronto AND have waited the minimum interval between doses (Pfizer-BioNTech at least 21 days ago or Moderna at least 28 days ago)
      • If your first dose was AstraZeneca, you can get Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech for your second dose (based on vaccine supply). It must be at least 12 weeks after your first dose.
  • Unity Health-St. Joseph’s vaccine clinic:
    • Second dose vaccinations: Unity Health will be moving up appointments on a “first-in, first-out” basis, as our vaccine supply allows.
