The TTC is proud to partner with the City of Toronto, Toronto Public Health, and hospital partners to help people get vaccinated and will be participating in the upcoming #DaysofVaxtion push.
From Sept. 16 to 18, the TTC will host daily vaccination clinics at Warden, Islington and Sheppard West stations, in partnership with East Toronto Health Partners, Toronto Public Health and Humber River Hospital, respectively. All three clinics are open to TTC customers, employees and members of the public.
The TTC previously hosted pop-up vaccination clinics at several of its stations, most recently at Sheppard West Station from Sept. 10-12. Hundreds of first and second doses were administered at these clinics.
“As we look to increase our vaccine uptake and meet our goal of vaccinating 90% of the population, the City has been working with the TTC and all our partners across Toronto to make the vaccine as accessible as possible," said Mayor John Tory. "The new vaccine clinics at various TTC stations across the City have played an important role in bringing the vaccine directly to people and making it a part of their commute. I encourage residents who have yet to get their first or second dose to visit one of these clinics and get their vaccine. The more people who get vaccinated the better it will be for all of us as we move ahead in our reopening and rebuilding efforts."
“The TTC remains committed to supporting the fight against COVID-19. I am very pleased that so many people have taken advantage of the clinics at subway stations and on our buses,” said TTC Chair Jaye Robinson. “By hosting these clinics in accessible and convenient locations, we hope to reach those who have not yet been fully vaccinated. I encourage all eligible Torontonians to get vaccinated, and help bring this pandemic to an end.”
“We are pleased to provide customers who have not yet received their vaccine with the opportunity to get vaccinated during their commute by hosting frequent clinics at our stations. We will continue to work with our partners to provide convenient locations for everyone who still needs to get their vaccine,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “We’ve also implemented a mandatory vaccination policy for employees, and I encourage any staff members who are not yet vaccinated to take advantage of these clinics.”
The clinics will be located in the mezzanine area of the stations, and will run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day, while supplies last. People 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.
Customers are encouraged to visit ttc.ca for additional information and to stay informed on any future TTC-hosted vaccination clinics.
Persons interested in getting vaccinated today are welcome to visit the vaccination clinic at Union Station until 8 p.m. tonight. This clinic in the Bay concourse is also open on Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
