With more than 305,000 doses administered by Unity Health and our community partners, the COVID-19 vaccination clinics at St. Joseph’s and St. Michael’s had their final day of operations on Friday, July 30.

For the health and safety of our patients and our communities, even if you have received the COVID-19 vaccine, please continue to follow all public health measures and Unity Health Toronto’s visitor restrictions. The COVID-19 vaccine protects against severe illness and death caused by COVID-19, but individuals who are vaccinated can still catch and spread the virus. Please continue to do the following:
- Wear a mask, practice physical distancing and practice frequent and proper hand hygiene. For more information on our current public health measures, please visit this page.
- Follow our current visitor policy which limits visits only to Essential Care Partners who have applied for, been accepted, and scheduled a visit as an Essential Care Partner. Please do not come to the hospital if you have not been approved to visit. For more information on our current visitor policy, please visit this page.
