Toronto's First Mass Vaccine Clinic Is Ready To Go & Here's A Sneak Peek Inside (PHOTOS)

The city is set up to vaccinate 250 people a day there.

As of Monday, January 18, Toronto's first mass vaccination clinic will be open for business.

Premier Doug Ford and Mayor John Tory visited the clinic on Sunday and shared photos on Twitter. It's easy to see why the government is hoping to vaccinate so many people there — the place is huge.

The clinic is set up inside the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and it's clear that Toronto is using all the space available to them.

It will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week, for at least six weeks.

In the photos, Ford and Tory are shown checking out different numbered tables, presumably where people will get their vaccine doses.

The clinic is also important because it's the "proof-of-concept" for more mass vaccination sites across the province.

Speaking to reporters last week, the head of Ontario's vaccine rollout team said they expect to administer 250 vaccine doses a day.

Ontario is currently in the first phase of its vaccination plan, and all of Toronto's LTC residents and staff have now received their first dose.
