The TTC is continuing its vaccination drive, with clinics scheduled at five stations this week. Starting tomorrow, Oct. 5, until Thurs., Oct. 7, the TTC will host vaccination clinics at Warden, Victoria Park and Sheppard West stations. Clinics will also be held at Jane and Sheppard-Yonge stations from Oct. 6 to 8. All clinics will be open to TTC customers, employees and members of the public.
The TTC has previously hosted pop-up vaccination clinics at several of its stations, most recently at Wilson, Victoria Park and Lawrence West stations from Sept. 28 to 30.
"The TTC has been a great partner in helping us get residents vaccinated against COVID-19," said Mayor John Tory. "Having vaccine clinics right in TTC stations makes sure the vaccine is easily accessible to residents and that more and more people will be able to get their first or second dose of vaccine. If you're not fully vaccinated yet, please visit one of these clinics and get vaccinated to protect yourself and protect the progress we are making fighting COVID-19."
"I'm proud of the TTC's ongoing efforts in hosting these in-station clinics to aid in the fight against COVID-19. If you are still not fully vaccinated, please take advantage of the opportunity to get your shot by visiting any of these locations. The TTC will continue to work with health partners wherever possible to make vaccinations accessible to all," said TTC Chair Jaye Robinson.
"We've hosted 35 vaccination clinics since May, some for employees and their families, and others in stations that are open to customers. Our health partners have been able to administer over 6,000 doses at these clinics," said TTC CEO Rick Leary. "I am pleased that we have helped so many people get vaccinated. We will continue to look at expanding these clinics to additional stations, so that every Toronto resident has the opportunity to get their shot."
The clinics at Warden and Victoria Park stations are being hosted in partnership with East Toronto Health Partners, while the clinic at Sheppard West Station is in partnership with Humber River Hospital. Clinics at Jane and Sheppard-Yonge stations are being hosted with Toronto Public Health. All locations will operate from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day while supplies last.
Those visiting the vaccine clinics who are not travelling on the TTC will not be required to pay a fare. First and second doses will be offered to everyone born in 2009 or earlier (turning 12 or older this year). No appointments will be required, and both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be available.
