COVID-19 Vaccine Update from Jaye Robinson May 10

Here is the latest COVID-19 Vaccine Update from Jaye Robinson including details on eligibility of all residents aged 40 and older to receive a vaccine at one of the City of Toronto’s mass immunization clinics.

Dear Friends and Neighbours,

With vaccine supply steadily increasing, the Provincial government has announced several important eligibility updates.

Starting tomorrow (Tuesday, May 11) at 8:00am, individuals with “at-risk” health conditions and those who fall under the Province’s “Group Two” category of people who cannot work from home will become eligible to book an appointment for their first dose of the vaccine at a City-run immunization clinic.

On Thursday, May 13 at 8:00am, individuals turning 40 and older in 2021 will also become eligible to book an appointment for their first dose of the vaccine at a City-run immunization clinic. The age of eligibility in hot spot postal codes identified by the Province remains 18+. All appointments at City-run clinics can be booked through the Provincial booking portal.

Over the weekend, the Province announced that select pharmacy locations in Toronto and Peel are now offering first doses of the Pfizer vaccine to all residents aged 18+, regardless of their postal code. A broader selection of pharmacies continue to offer the AstraZeneca vaccine to all residents aged 40 and older. You can find more information about participating pharmacies on the Province’s website.

To-date, almost 1.5 million vaccines have been administered in Toronto and approximately 50% of adults have received their first dose. The Province anticipates that eligibility will continue to expand throughout the month. 

Stay safe,
