We are planning to administer up to 250 first dose COVID-19 vaccinations each day for the first three weeks. Matthew Pegg

"This immunization clinic is planned to operate from 11:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m, seven days per week for a period of at least 6 weeks," Pegg stated. 

The City of Toronto is planning to administer up to 250 first dose COVID-19 vaccinations daily for the first three weeks. 

The doses will be given to a select group of frontline health care workers.

"Over the course of the following weeks, we will focus on the administration of the second dose of COVID-19 vaccination for the same sample group of people."

Pegg also noted that the provincial government had asked the City to open this clinic early to test the logistics for future locations. 

Later on in the year, even more clinics could open around the city.
