Mobile clinics for high-risk populations

Following the Ontario Vaccination Plan, NYGH-NYTHP is focusing our limited vaccine supply on mobile clinics for high-risk groups. Over the next two weeks, our mobile clinics will continue to plan clinics in settings in our highest risk neighbourhoods, as well as seniors living in congregate settings and residents of group homes in North York. 

By bringing the vaccine into these buildings and locations, we are making it easier for people with barriers and vulnerable groups to receive their shot.

We are working with local partners to reach out to residents in specific high-risk buildings to schedule mobile clinic appointments.

Second Dose Appointments

Most people in Ontario will get their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine 16 weeks after the first dose. This allows more people to access the first dose sooner. Research now recommends that some people get their second dose sooner because of the high risk of severe COVID-19 and the way the vaccine builds immunity in some people. *In Ontario, the following patients will now receive their second dose 21 to 28 days after the first dose:

  • Transplant recipients
  • Individuals receiving active cancer treatment (chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy.  Note - “Active cancer treatment” excludes those solely receiving hormonal therapy or radiation therapy)
