Mobile vaccination clinics coming to Toronto malls this weekend with ‘ShopAndVax’ event

The City of Toronto’s “ShopAndVax” initiative will see mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics held at several malls this weekend.

The City detailed the campaign in a news release Tuesday.

Officials said the clinics will be held from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday at the following malls:

  • CF Fairview Mall
  • CF Sherway Gardens
  • CF Shops at Don Mills
  • CF Toronto Eaton Centre
  • Yorkdale Shopping Centre

The event is part of the City’s “mobile strategy” vaccination approach, aimed at making vaccines more easily accessible for residents and bringing shots to areas that have lower vaccination coverage or where the risk of contracting COVID-19 is greater.

Officials said in addition to the mall locations, there will be more than 25 additional mobile clinics operating across the city this weekend.

The “ShopAndVax” announcement came on the same day a new vaccination clinic was opened at Woodbine Mall, replacing the one at The Hangar.

City clinics also continue to operate at Cloverdale Mall, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and the Scarborough Town Centre. A full list of public clinics in Toronto can be found here.

Meanwhile, Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccine certificate system takes effect Wednesday for some businesses.
