Four city-run vaccination clinics to close Dec. 13
The city will be closing four vaccination clinics in downtown Toronto, Etobicoke, North York and Scarborough on Dec. 13, according to a Monday news release. The four fixed-site vaccination clinics began operating in August this year.
The clinics at Cloverdale Mall (250 The East Mall), Metro Hall (214 Wellington St. W.), North York Civic Centre (5100 Yonge St.) and Scarborough (410 Progress Ave., Unit D3) are currently open five days a week noon to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
According to the city’s news release, the clinics are shutting down as provincial funding for emergency COVID-19 response ends. (Other vaccines provided at the clinics included shots for human papilloma virus, mpox and measles.) The clinics were established to provide “fast, equitable access to vaccines for Toronto residents,” the release said.
This update comes soon after Ontario’s wastewater signal and nationwide hospitalizations for COVID-19 suggested that COVID cases may be the highest for the year at this time.
