The city of Toronto states that the campaign to vaccinate children aged 5 to 11 has made a “successful” start with more than 6,100 doses in the first three days.

In a news release published on Sunday, the city stated that 6,134 children received their first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric vaccine at five immune clinics between November 25 and 27.

In a statement, the city’s medical officer, Dr. Eileen de Villa, said it was an “encouraging achievement” for Toronto.

“A large number of 5-11 year old heroes are stepping up from COVID-19 to protect themselves, their loved ones, and our entire community,” de Villa said.

“Thanks to Team Toronto’s partners for their continued efforts to protect us all and end this pandemic.”

Mayor of Toronto John Torrey also thanked his family for helping the children get shot.

“Our Team Toronto Kids COVID-19 Vaccination Program is off to a busy and successful start,” said the Tories. “Thanks to everyone who helped people get vaccinated at all Team Toronto Clinics this weekend.”

The city is encouraging parents who have not booked their children to book their vaccines to do so, saying there are still slots available next week and the week of December 7.

It said it added more than 9,600 appointments for the week of December 14th and December 21st.

The city has transformed the clinic into something more child-friendly. Children will be given the opportunity to take pictures with superhero-themed vaccine passports, stickers, color sheets and superhero selfie stations.

Pediatric vaccines are also available in hospital-operated clinics, pharmacies, clinics, schools and elsewhere, and the city announced on Tuesday that it would provide the total number of children vaccinated everywhere.

“It’s emotional and uplifting to see the relief of the faces of parents and children in our clinic after the difficult two years we’ve experienced,” Coun said. Joe Cressy, Chairman of the Toronto Health Commission.

“Now, after a strong start, we need to continue working to vaccinate our children and our city.”

The state reported on Sunday that Toronto had recorded 129 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours.
