COVID-19 Immunization Clinics for East Toronto

Last updated: May 16, 2022

Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) and East Toronto Health Partners (ETHP) are operating COVID-19 Immunization Clinics across East Toronto to ensure the community has access to the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Due to vaccine supply and availability, Moderna will likely be administered during your vaccine appointment with MGH/ETHP if you are aged 30 or older. Pfizer will be administered for children aged 5 to 11.

The Moderna vaccine is as safe and effective as the Pfizer vaccine. In addition, it is safe and effective to mix vaccine brands, especially for your booster doses. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine will provide you maximum protection against COVID-19, including the highly transmissible Omicron variant. We strongly encourage you to accept the first vaccine brand available to you, regardless of the vaccine brand(s) you received for previous dose(s).

If you feel sick or have COVID-19 symptoms, please do not visit our COVID-19 vaccine clinics, even if you have booked an appointment in advance. You should self-isolate or self-monitor according to guidance from the Ontario government. If you have COVID-19 and are vaccinated while infected, the vaccine may not be as effective.
