Scarborough Vaccine Clinic Line Was So Long It Looped A Football Field ...

Residents in line at a pop-up clinic in Scarborough waited for hours on Thursday morning for their chance to get an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine dose.

The David and Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute is hosting a pop-up vaccine clinic on Thursday and Friday, offering appointments on a first-come, first-served basis — according to Scarborough local Ali Khan, there were already hundreds of people in line before sunrise.

"I checked the line just driving by at 3 a.m. and people were already lining up, maybe around 50," Khan told Narcity via DM. "The line started moving [at] around 7:30. I got my appointment for noon. It took about 3 hours."

By the time the line started moving, it had wrapped around the football field four times, said Khan, "but people just kept coming even after seeing the crowd."

However, knowing there were 1,500 vaccine doses available thanks to Vaccine Hunters Canada, Khan was "confident" he would get his turn.

Similarly, long lines were spotted at the Rexdale Community Centre yesterday, where residents shielded themselves from the rain with umbrellas and garbage bags while they waited their turn.
