Hamilton’s COVID-19 vaccination program expansion to include additional outdoor mobile pop-up vaccination clinics

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. We are pleased to announce that to date, we have administered approximately 387,127 doses of COVD-19 vaccine – with upwards of 68.3% of Hamiltonians over the age of 18 and 44% of youth ages 12+ receiving a vaccine to date.

In partnership with Hamilton Public Health Services, the Ministry of Health’s mobile team is visiting Hamilton and will be hosting additional outdoor mobile pop-up vaccination clinics on June 15 & 16.  These clinics have been located in areas of the City with lower vaccination coverage rates in order to improve access to the vaccine.  Individuals 12 years of age and older who are eligible to receive a first or second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine can book into the clinic.

Clinic details How to access

Stoney Creek Recreation Centre
45 King St. W., L8G 1H7

Clinics can be accessed by:

These mobile pop-up clinics will be located outdoors. Individuals are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather and protect themselves against the sun.

Please note, these clinics will be at this location on these days only and then will move onto another location. This team will return for scheduled second dose appointments.

Public Health Services recommends that everyone who is eligible for a vaccination receive the first vaccine that is available to them. 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 populations.
