At the end of each day, the City of Toronto will provide Vaccine Hunters Canada with appointment availability at Toronto's mass immunization clinics, which Vaccine Hunters Canada will then share on Twitter.
"This is a huge, all hands-on deck effort and Vaccine Hunters Canada have stepped up to help people get vaccinated and navigate the different registration systems," said Mayor John Tory in a news release.
Toronto City Councillor Josh Matlow tweeted that, while he's grateful for Vaccine Hunters Canada's tireless efforts, "the very fact, so many of us are reliant on a group of tech-friendly volunteers (rather than an effective government portal where one can pre-register) to find out where to get vaccinated, speaks volumes."

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has just filed a $90 million lawsuit against the City and Toronto Fire Services (TFS) over a massive fire that destroyed York Memorial Collegiate Institute in 2019.
The legal document claims that the fire department failed to do its job properly upon initial arrival, which resulted in the fire rekindling on May 7, the following day. TDSB also argues that Fire Chief Matthew Pegg attempted to sway them into believing the fires were separate.
"While the TDSB and our insurers had hoped to resolve this matter outside of court, we were left with no choice but to take legal action," stated the school.
In a press conference, Pegg commented on the lawsuit, saying, "I became aware of the statement of claim being filed today, a copy of one of the media articles was sent to me by a colleague. It is now in the hands of city legal, as is our process at any point of time for any legal action, and that's where it's best suited. It's a matter that will be managed by legal services and ultimately in the courts."
