COVID-19 Vaccination

COVID-19 Vaccination

Update on Vaccination Efforts

Thank you to everyone who has worked in, volunteered at or received a vaccine at one of the North York General Hospital (NYGH)-North York Toronto Health Partners (NYTHP) vaccine clinics over the past months.

We have been extremely successful in our vaccination efforts to date, having administered more than 250,000 vaccines at our clinics!

As we work to reach the last 20% of eligible people who have not been fully vaccinated yet efforts need to be more community-based.

As we transition to a more targeted, community-based vaccination approach, the larger NYGH-operated clinics are winding down – the Seneca clinic site has closed and the General site vaccination clinic will be closing as of August 27. The City of Toronto will operate a number of clinics across the city, including a clinic at Mitchell Field, as we work together to boost vaccination rates in North York communities. 

We will continue to list clinics in our community on this page.

If you had your first dose at one of our clinics and haven’t yet received your second, we will be reaching out to you by phone through the Ministry of Health call centre at 1-833-943-3900. These calls will help you better understand the options that are available for you for your second dose. Thank you for doing your part to protect our community!

Vaccine eligibility:

You are now eligible for a second dose of COVID-19 Vaccine in Ontario if:

  • You received your first dose of Pfizer at least 21 days ago
  • You received your first dose of Modern at least 28 days ago
  • You received your first dose of AstraZeneca at least 56 days ago

Mixing mRNA vaccines:

Mixing vaccines is safe, effective, and enables more Ontarians to receive their second dose sooner. Full vaccination is the greatest protection you can have against COVID-19 and its variants, including the Delta variant.

If you had Moderna or Pfizer for your first dose you can safely take either Moderna or Pfizer for your second dose for strong protection. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are authorized for use in Canada and use a similar mRNA technology, so the vaccines are safe to mix. This is consistent with recommendations recently provided by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization and with practices within several provinces. Both provide strong protection against COVID-19 and its variants. If your second COVID-19 vaccine is different than your first dose, you do not need to start your series over again. You will be considered fully immunized two weeks after receiving two doses of Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccines. Please see the Ministry of Health's mRNA fact sheet.

Accelerated Second Dose Rollout

Following the Government of Ontario’s accelerated rollout of second doses, North York General Hospital and North York Toronto Health Partners have cancelled original second dose appointments so accelerated appointments can be booked at an earlier date.

If you still need a second dose appointment please contact the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900.
