Toronto Public Health has announced that the city’s 10 H1N1 vaccine clinics will be open to the general public starting Wednesday, November 18th.
“Our 10 clinics are fully staffed, and we are now operating seven days a week. Everyone is welcome,” said Dr. David McKeown, Toronto Medical Officer of Health.
The clinics are open Mon-Friday from 1-9pm, and on weekends from 10am-4pm.
A complete list of clinics is available at http://www.toronto.ca/health or by calling 311.
Anyone who lives or works in Peel Region can get the H1N1 vaccine starting on Thursday.
Those who live in Halton Region can get the shot as early as Wednesday.
The shot will be made available to everyone one year of age and older.
Demand from the high-risk/priority groups started to decline over the weekend.
“We have already provided more than 150,000 H1N1 shots to people in the high-priority groups through a combination of our own public clinics and our strong network of family physicians,” Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health for the region outlined in a press release.
“It’s time to move on.”
There are several clinics open in Peel – check out the full list here.
The website will update the wait time at each clinic every hour.
You can also call your family doctor to see if he or she can provide the vaccine.
