Toronto Mayor John Tory got a dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine on April 10 at a Shoppers Drug Mart and said he "literally did not even feel the needle."
It was broadcasted live on CP24 and before getting it, Tory said he wasn't nervous and doesn't mind needles as long as he can watch it going in.

Right as the vaccine was administered he gave a thumbs up to the camera and he seemed to be smiling underneath his face mask.
While waiting for 15 minutes after getting the dose, Tory said that he was "completely confident" in the vaccine and didn't feel the needle going in or any pain.
Doug Ford got his first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine at a pharmacy a day earlier but he went shopping during his wait period while Tory just sat down.
