The Scotiabank Arena will transition into a COVID-19 immunization clinic next Sunday. Toronto said Monday, they are trying to set a one-day record for vaccinations administered in Ontario. Officials in Toronto said the pop-up clinic will have more than 10,000 doses on hand on June 27. Most of the shots available will be the Moderna vaccine with the Pfizer doses prioritized for residents aged 12 through 17.
Even though both of these mRNA vaccines function similarly, Health Canada only approved Pfizer for use on adolescents. Starting 8 a.m. today, anyone 12 and older can book a first dose appointment at the clinic. Second doses will be available to those who got a shot of Pfizer or Moderna before May 9, also, if you received AstraZeneca on or before May 1.
The Scotiabank Arena is currently not in use for any major sporting event. The Toronto Raptors played their regular season in Florida and failed to make the postseason. The Toronto Maple Leafs were knocked out in the first round by the Montreal Canadiens. You can book an appointment by clicking here or calling the provincial booking line at 1-833-943-3900
