Hamilton’s COVID-19 vaccination program expansion: mobile vaccination pop-up clinics

HAMILTON, ON - The Hamilton healthcare partners continue to make progress in vaccinating members of the community who fall into Phase 1 of the Province’s COVID-19 Vaccination Framework. We are pleased to announce that to date, we have administered approximately 114,631 doses of COVD-19 vaccine – with 19.3% of eligible Hamiltonians receiving a vaccine to date.

The mobile vaccination team will be administering COVID-19 vaccinations to those who are eligible at the pop-up vaccination clinics listed below. 

Please note, the mobile team will be at these locations on the following dates and then will move onto another location. The mobile vaccination team will return for scheduled second dose appointments.

Pop-up Clinic Locations

  • Bernie Morelli Recreation Centre - April 7 to 11
  • Pinky Lewis Recreation Centre - April 7 to 11

Booking an appointment at a mobile pop-up clinic

Members of the public can call the Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7.  A list of mobile pop-up clinics can be found by visiting, or through the hotline. Due to potential call volumes expected at the call centre, we ask that those who are calling for an appointment are patient and call back if the lines are busy. These are all by-appointment only clinics, walk-ins are not permitted.

We need to work together to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community, to reserve healthcare and hospital capacity and to protect vulnerable settings.
