COVID-19 Vaccines and Toronto Hot Spots

Toronto Public Health (TPH), in partnership with the Ministry of Education, has announced beginning the week of April 12th – 16th, eligible education staff will be able to register for COVID-19 vaccination appointments. 

As a result, the following Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) staff are eligible for a prioritized vaccine: 

  • Education staff who provide direct in-person support to students with complex special needs (ME/DD programs).
  • Education staff who work in select “hot spot schools” identified by TPH.
  • Educational workers who live in COVID-19 "hotspots" in Toronto or Peel. 

All eligible TCDSB staff have received a confirmation message regarding their vaccine eligibility. 

Please note Toronto residents aged 50+ (born in 1971 or earlier) and living in hot spot postal codes can now book appointments at City immunization clinics. Learn who is currently eligible to book at City immunization clinics and at hospital immunization clinics or pharmacies, or for more information on how to get vaccinated visit the City of Toronto website​

Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to protect you and your loved ones from COVID-19. TCDSB strongly encourages staff and eligible residents to get vaccinated when they are able, and it is our hope that in due time everyone has an opportunity to get vaccinated.
