The Mid-West Toronto Ontario Health Team (MWT-OHT) is proud to help lead plans to get our community vaccinated against COVID-19.
Participants for each phase of vaccination have been identified in accordance with the Province of Ontario’s Ethical Framework for COVID-19 vaccine prioritization and the Guidance for Prioritizing Heath Care Workers for COVID-19 Vaccination. This guidance ensures our most at-risk members of the community have access to the vaccine first.
There are currently three ways eligible adults can get vaccinated in Ontario. Eligibility criteria and appointment booking instructions are different for each vaccine pathway. Please read this page carefully to help you choose which is the right path for you.
Starting April 20, 2021, select pharmacies across the province are booking appointments for AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines for eligible people aged 40 or older in 2021. Click here to find a COVID-19 vaccine pharmacy location.
Your primary care provider may contact you to book an appointment for the AstraZeneca vaccine. Primary care providers will not be taking appointments by request.
Our OHT Partners have set up a number of vaccination clinics to help meet the demands in our community. Currently, there are five vaccination clinics within the MWT-OHT catchment area (Yonge Street to Roncesvalles Avenue, Eglington Avenue to Lake Ontario).
To ensure the people who live and work in our region get efficient access, planning has gone into which populations are vaccinated at each clinic. Please see below a list of the clinics, who they are currently vaccinating and how eligible people can book their appointments.

UHN has three clinics that serve different populations:
Bookings for these clinics are done through a single UHN portal. To view eligibility criteria, and to book your appointment or pre-register for one, please click here.
All vaccine clinics are planned with ease of navigation and comfort in mind. When you arrive, a team member will greet you at the door. If you are nervous or have questions, please let our screeners know and you’ll be paired with someone to provide assistance.
Our Partners at Surrey Place shot this great video at the Community Clinic at the West End YMCA to give you look at what to expect when you arrive.
Pharmacies and primary care providers are giving the AstraZeneca vaccine. Vaccine clinics and pop-ups administer either Moderna or Pfizer, depending on supply. We are not able to tell you which you’ll receive in advance of your appointment.
The COVID-19 vaccines available in Ontario have been through rigorous safety checks by Health Canada. You are encouraged to accept the first vaccine you are offered. For more information about the vaccines, please click here.
The Government of Ontario has extended the acceptable time between doses from up to 35 days later to up to 4 months.
This decision was made based on guidance from Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization. The Committee made this recommendation based on new studies on the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as information from countries that have vaccinated more of their populations.
