HAMILTON, ON - The Hamilton healthcare partners continue to make progress in vaccinating members of the community who fall into the Province’s COVID-19 Vaccination Framework. To date, Hamilton healthcare partners have administered 795,766 doses of COVD-19 vaccine – with 81 per cent of eligible Hamiltonians receiving a vaccine to date and 73.7 per cent fully vaccinated.
The Hamilton healthcare partners, along with the Ministry of Health, will be bringing the COVID-19 vaccine to even more residents of Hamilton by offering mobile clinics in neighbourhoods across the city. Many of these clinics will be situated in areas of the city with lower vaccination coverage rates in order to improve access to the vaccine. Individuals 12 years of age or older before the end of 2021 are eligible to receive a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and can walk-in to any of the below clinics.
The below clinics are newly announced, all vaccination clinics can be found by visiting www.hamilton.ca/GetYourVaccine.
With back-to-school around the corner, and a return to more indoor settings in the Fall, it’s vital that Hamilton’s vaccination coverage continues to increase and that all Hamiltonians follow public health measures to reduce the spread of the virus.
