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 health care partners have administered 748,710 doses of COVD-19 vaccine – with 77.5% of Hamiltonians over the age of 12 receiving a vaccine to date and 68.3% of individuals over the age of 12 completing their vaccine series.
The Hamilton healthcare partners, along with the “new” Provincial GO-VAXX Bus initiative will be bringing the COVID-19 vaccine to even more residents of Hamilton by bringing more mobile clinics to neighbourhoods across the city. 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 and older who are eligible to receive a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine can walk-in to any of the below clinics.
