Update on COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts

Updated: Nov 22, 2021

North York Toronto Health Partners (NYTHP) and Toronto Public Health have partnered to provide COVID vaccination clinics in the North York community.

Thank you to everyone who is working, volunteering or receiving a vaccine at one of the clinics.

Update on vaccinations for 5 to 11 year olds

On November 19, Health Canada approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 and we expect more details from the Ontario Government next week about the eligibility of this age group when supply is available. More details will be provided as we have them.

Team Toronto, which includes all participating OHTs in the City and Toronto Public Health, will provide school-based mobile clinics in specific areas that would benefit from a neighbourhood-focused strategy during the initial rollout. In North York, the first clinics will be offered in schools in the Parkwoods-Donalda neigbourhood.

Parents, caregivers and students in Parkwoods-Donalda will receive clinic information directly from their school when a clinic is available to them. See the City of Toronto announcement.
