Mobile and pop-up vaccine clinics in East Toronto

Last updated: September 27, 2022

Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) and East Toronto Health Partners (ETHP), the Ontario Health Team (OHT) serving East Toronto, are operating walk-in mobile and pop-up vaccine clinics for the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine.

These clinics help make the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine as easy and convenient to get as possible.

What is the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine?

Bivalent means the vaccine contains two strains of COVID-19 – the original strain and an Omicron variant. It offers stronger protection against the Omicron variant.

The bivalent vaccine is given as a booster dose. This means you cannot get the bivalent vaccine as part of your primary series (i.e. the first one to three doses, depending on how vulnerable to COVID-19 you are).

Individuals who need a dose as part of their primary series of the COVID-19 vaccine should book an appointment for the Pfizer or Moderna monovalent vaccine at a clinic near them by using the provincial booking system online or calling 1-833-943-3900.

All COVID-19 vaccines, including the bivalent vaccine, can be safely taken at the same time, or around the same time, as the flu vaccine.

Who can come to these mobile and pop-up clinics for the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine?

These clinics are open by walk-in to:

  • Individuals aged 18 and older who already received one to three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and received their previous dose at least three months ago
  • Individuals aged 12 to 17 who are moderately to severely immunocompromised and already received their first one to three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and received their previous dose at least three months ago

No appointments or health cards are needed. If you do not have a health card, you can bring an ID or document with your name on it, like a driver’s license, passport, utility bill, pay stub or student ID.

Individuals aged 12 to 17 who are moderately to severely immunocompromised must verbally confirm they are immunocompromised before they receive the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine at our clinics.

I have accessibility challenges. Can I still come to these mobile and pop-up clinics for the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes. We strive to ensure our vaccine clinics can provide accommodations for people who need assistance during their visit. This includes seniors, people with mobility impairments and special needs, and people with young children. Accommodations at our clinics may include:

  • Separate clinic entrance;
  • Expedited line;
  • Elevator access; and/or
  • A sit-and-stay vaccination experience.

If you need assistance, please identify yourself to one of our staff members to ensure we provide you with the proper accommodations.
