The city also continues to target neighbourhoods where vaccine rates remain very low.
Health officials continue to hammer home the message, “close the gap.”
While the overall rate of fully vaccinated Torontonians 12 and up is approaching 70 per cent – some neighbourhoods are still lagging behind.
Focus is turning to some areas in the city’s northwest where the double vaccination rate is close to 49 per cent.
