Two Toronto H1N1 Clinics To Close, Eight Will Remain Open

As of Monday morning, there will be two fewer places in Toronto to get the H1N1 vaccine.

Several assessment centres will also close their doors.

Clinics at Masaryk-Cowan Community Recreation Centre and Melody Public School will shut down after a full day on Sunday, November 29.

Eight clinics in the city will remain open.

Toronto Public Health made the decision because fewer people are lining up to get the shot.

“The traffic at most of our clinics remains steady and we have vaccinated approximately 7,000 people per day this past week,” explained Dr. Barbara Yaffe in a press release.

“Two clinics have seen a drop in attendance, and are ready to close,” the director of Communicable Disease Control added.

As well, at least three of the five flu assessment centres will close at the end of the day on Friday.  For a list of centres that are still open, click here.
