Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital has opened pre-registration for COVID-19 vaccinations for eligible Toronto residents.
Those who are 70 and older, indigenous adults, adults who receive homecare and anyone who works in a healthcare setting may sign up to get their shots.
The appointments will take place eventually at Sunnybrook’s Bayview campus, but a statement also cautions that pre-registration does not guarantee a vaccine appointment.

At the same time, we’ve learned there will be more than 350 different locations administering COVID 19 vaccines in Toronto once supply improves.
“There will be a place to call, a phone centre, as well as an online opportunity to register and to get scheduled so that people can get answers to the question, when, where, by whom, which can include everything from a pharmacy to a community health organization, through to a hospital, through to one of our mass vaccination clinics,” Mayor Tory explained on Monday.
The network of vaccination sites will include the nine city-operated clinics we’ve heard about previously, as well as 49 sites operated by hospitals, 46 sites operated by community health centres and 249 sites operated by pharmacies.
We’re told 1400 staff members are being hired and trained to keep the City of Toronto’s mass immunization sites running.
