Walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics will take place today (Monday, Jan. 10) at two East Toronto area schools.
The clinics are presented by Michael Garron Hospital and East Toronto Health Partners.
Today’s walk-in vaccination clinics will take place at J.G. Workman Public School, 487 Birchmount Rd.; and Grenoble Public School, 9 Grenoble Dr.
Both of today’s clinics will run from noon to 8 p.m., or until vaccine supplies run out. There will be 300 adult doses and 150 child doses available at each clinic.
There are specific eligibility requirements for the clinics based on location and postal codes of people seeking shots.
All of the walk-in clinics are for individuals age 5 or older who live anywhere in the city and are seeking either a first or second vaccine shot.
However, eligibility for those seeking a booster (third) shot is much more limited and depends on the postal code you reside in. Please check the eligibility requirements for each clinic carefully.
For today’s walk-in clinic at J.G. Workman school, those eligible for booster shots at this clinic must be 18 years of age or older and live or go to school in the M1K M1L and M1N postal codes.
For today’s walk-in clinic at Grenoble Public School, those eligible for booster shots at this clinic must be 18 years of age or older and live or go to school in the M3C or M4H postal codes.
If you plan on attending one of the scheduled walk-in clinics this week, you are asked to bring the following:
For ages 12 and older, a health card is not required if you do not have one. You can bring an ID or document with your name, like a driver’s license, passport, utility bill, pay stub, student ID or report card. Even if you do not have these documents, you are encouraged you to attend one of these clinics. The Michael Garron Hospital and East Toronto Health Partners team members will do their best to help get you vaccinated. Physicians and nurses will be onsite to answer your questions about the vaccine.
For children ages 5 to 11, parents and/or guardians are asked to please bring your child’s health card if they have one. If your child does not have a health card, you can bring an ID or document with their name and date of birth, like a passport, birth certificate, landing paper, school data form or yellow immunization card. You can also bring a letter from your school, medical provider or faith leader that confirms the child’s name, date of birth and address. Even if you do not have these documents, you are encouraged you to attend one of these clinics. The Michael Garron Hospital and East Toronto Health Partners team members will do their best to help get your child vaccinated.
