York Region COVID-19 mass vaccination clinics scheduled to close by end of August

Mobile and pop-up clinics will continue and support a more targeted approach

The Regional Municipality of York is making excellent progress in administering COVID-19 vaccinations. To date, approximately 81% of residents age 12+ have received their first dose and more than 71% of residents age 12+ are fully vaccinated.

As the percentage of vaccinated residents continues to increase for first and second doses, the need for large scale immunization clinics is decreasing. Rather than continuing to operate these mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics, York Region Public Health is beginning to transition to smaller mobile and pop-up clinic models.

This approach allows York Region Public Health to re-allocate resources to support mobile and pop-up clinics in more convenient locations across York Region. This will help target more specific immunization efforts in areas of the Region where vaccination rates may be lower.

Effective Monday, August 30, 2021 the vaccination centre will be moving to a new location within Markham Stouffville Hospital. Specific details are being finalized and will be shared on york.ca/COVID19Vaccine over the next couple of weeks.

All individuals who already have a previously booked appointment at one of these clinics after its scheduled closure will be contacted by York Region Public Health by emailIndividuals may also rebook an earlier appointment, walk-in to a York Region Public Health clinic, contact your health care provider or visit your closest pharmacy to receive a first or second dose.

For youth ages 12 to 17 to be fully vaccinated by the first day of school, they need to receive their second COVID-19 vaccine dose 14 or more days before school resumes.

Vaccines continue to be our best defence against COVID-19 and at keeping ourselves, loved ones, workplaces and community safe. The sooner people are vaccinated, the sooner lives can return to normal. Now that Ontario has moved to Step Three of its Roadmap to Reopen, it’s important for as many people as possible to be protected. With increased gathering limits and indoor activities permitted, we know COVID-19, especially the Delta variant, can spread quickly amongst groups.

York Region will continue to publicly communicate new pop-up and mobile clinics through multiple communication channels, including york.ca, social media and our media and community partners.

The Regional Municipality of York consists of nine local cities and towns and provides a variety of programs and services to 1.2 million residents and 54,000 businesses with 650,000 employees. More information about the Region’s key service areas is available at york.ca/regionalservices
