Vax and Ride clinics to continue throughout the Easter long weekend

Mayor John Tory took to the subway on Sunday to announce the Vax and Ride clinics will run on a walk-in basis throughout the Easter long weekend.

The COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be open starting this Thursday from noon to 7 p.m. at the Sheppard West, Islington, Jane, Sheppard-Yonge, Clair West, Bathurst, Kennedy, Warden and York University TTC stations.

Tory made the announcement during a visit to the Vax And Ride clinic at Kennedy Station in Scarborough.

He said residents can visit the clinics on a walk-in basis, and they don’t need an appointment, TTC fare payment or health card.

Clinics offer first, second, third, fourth and pediatric COVID-19 vaccines for those eligible. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available.

A full list of clinic locations and hours can be found on the City of Toronto’s COVID-19: Pop-Up Immunization Clinics webpage.

“So far, more than 1,800 people have received their COVID-19 vaccine dose from a Vax And Ride clinic,” Tory said.

“With the tremendous success of Vax And Ride, I am pleased to announce that this campaign will continue throughout the Easter long weekend,” Tory said. “It is great to see that Torontonians are embracing the ease and convenience of vaccine clinics at TTC stations.”
