Humber and the University of Guelph-Humber (UofGH) have partnered with the William Osler Health System (Osler) to expand access to the COVID-19 vaccine in Osler’s Etobicoke catchment area.
Starting Wednesday, April 14, Osler will transition its current Etobicoke COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic, located at Etobicoke General Hospital, to the Osler-Humber College COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic. The clinic will be located in the UofGH building at Humber’s North Campus.
Osler will provide oversight for the vaccine clinic and offer clinical experience for students in Humber’s Faculty of Health Sciences & Wellness. Many students will benefit from practical, real-world experience administering vaccines and being able to gain required work-integrated learning experience for their programs.
This partnership provides the community with access to COVID-19 vaccine shots in a safe, convenient place. Appointments at Osler’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic can be booked online through Osler’s website or by phone at 905-494-6685, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 7 days a week. Vaccinations are by appointment only.
The Osler-Humber College COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic is a community clinic, similar to the clinic operating at the Toronto Congress Centre and will vaccinate those deemed eligible by the Province’s COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan and the Toronto Public Health Unit.
All appointments booked on or after April 14, will automatically be moved over to the Main Lobby at the University of Guelph-Humber. Initially, between April 14 and 16, the clinic will maintain similar hours to the clinic at Etobicoke General Hospital, between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The goal is to ramp up to open seven days a week and have hours that can accommodate essential workers in the community who may work shifts.
For the four-month period of the clinic’s operations, only Vaccine Clinic staff, volunteers and those with confirmed vaccine appointments will be permitted to use the front doors at UofGH and Lot 3 for parking.
An official announcement will be made by Osler this afternoon. For any questions or inquiries please contact Tyler Charlebois, Manager, Strategic Partnerships, Humber.
We appreciate your patience and support around this special circumstance and opportunity to provide a vaccine clinic to our community members.
