Adults Over 18 In These 3 Toronto Postal Codes Can Now Register For Their Vaccine Dose
There are more COVID-19 vaccines in Toronto up for grabs, but whether you can register for your appointment depends on your postal code.
UPDATE: After just one day of being available, registrations for people in the M5V, M6E and M6H postal codes have been "temporarily paused" until more vaccines become available.
UHN's #COVID19 Vaccine Registry is now accepting first dose registration for: ➡️First responders: police, fire, EMS… https://t.co/5OckDeZT8f— University Health Network (@University Health Network) 1618265707
Operated by the Mid-West Toronto Ontario Health Team at the University Health Network, the pre-registrations are only available for people who also live or have a doctor in the hospital's catchment area or require care from a select number of Toronto hospitals.
The catchment area includes all of the M5V (Downtown) and M6H (Dufferin/Dovercourt) neighbourhoods, but anyone with an M6E postal code who lives north of Eglinton is outside of the catchment area.
After you pre-register, UHN will contact you via email to let you know that an appointment is up for grabs, but no information on a timeline is available on the UHN website.
Where are Toronto's pop-up vaccine clinics?
The province announced recently that it'd be targeting Ontario's COVID-19 "hot spots" by postal code through the use of mobile and pop-up vaccine clinics.
In Toronto, city officials told adults aged 18 and over that they can get a vaccine at a pop-up clinic if they live in one of the hot spots, but information on when and where those clinics are might be hard to find.
“Currently, some of our partners are promoting mobile clinics/pop-ups to the sites & communities the clinic is meant to serve & as a result are not widely advertised,” said Toronto Public Health in a tweet on Monday afternoon.
However, anybody over the age of 50 who lives in a hot spot can now book an appointment via Ontario's online booking system.
Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on the vaccines and can answer any questions you may have. Click here for more information.
