COVID-19 Vaccination

Carefirst Seniors and Community Services Association, Carefirst Family Health Team and Scarborough Health Network has come together to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Carefirst One-Stop Multi-Services Centre. We are pleased to keep our community safe and healthy through our Scarborough COVID-19 vaccine clinic. We encourage everyone who is eligible to get the vaccine.

Please visit to learn more about the vaccine clinic and book an appointment as soon as possible.

Second COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Please understand that we are experiencing higher than normal email and call volume after the Ontario government’s announcement about earlier second-dose vaccine appointments starting June 7, 2021.

If you received your first dose at Carefirst or at any of the clinics hosted by Scarborough Health Network (SHN) and its partners on or before April 4 (Pfizer)/April 18 (Moderna), you will be contacted directly by SHN or Carefirst about scheduling your appointment. We encourage those who have received an email from SHN to book their appointments via those embedded links as soon as possible.

You will not be able to book a second-dose appointment by calling in or via the main booking site at this time. SHN will continue to contact people who got their first shot after the aforementioned dates on a weekly basis to book their second appointments.

Thank you for your patience and consideration.
