Scarborough Health Network Operated Clinics and Mobile Clinics: The Scarborough Health Network (SHN) mass immunization clinics are currently facing vaccine shortages.

These clinics are advertised directly to those they are intended to serve through flyers, phone calls and/or emails. These clinics are not broadly advertised, as they have limited supply intended for targeted groups and cannot accommodate large numbers.

The best way to efficiently and rapidly vaccinate the greatest number of residents is through our mass vaccination clinics. My office continues to advocate for the expansion of eligibility at mass vaccination clinics, as supply increases.
