Hamilton COVID-19 vaccination program mobile vaccine clinics update

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 816,852 doses of COVD-19 vaccine – with 82.5 per cent of eligible Hamiltonians receiving a vaccine to date and 76.1 per cent fully vaccinated.

The Hamilton healthcare partners, along with the Provincial GO-VAXX Bus initiative 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.
