Hamilton to host several pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics in coming days

The City of Hamilton announced that more pop-up vaccination clinics to innoculate members of the community who are 75 years or older are going to start being deployed next week.

“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,” a City press release issued Thursday (March 25) said.

“We are pleased to announce that to date, we have administered approximately 74,709 doses of COVD-19 vaccine – with 11.4 per cent of eligible Hamiltonians receiving a vaccine to date.”

In an effort to reach more members of the community, they will host five by-appointment-only pop-up clinics across Hamilton from March 31 to April 4.

The mobile vaccination team will be administering COVID-19 vaccinations to those aged 75 and up at the pop-up vaccination clinics listed below.

Those interested in being vaccinated at these clinics can book an appointment by calling the Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7.

These are all by-appointment-only clinics and walk-ins are not permitted.

The City said in the release that the mobile team will be at these locations on the following dates and then will move onto other locations for other clinics in the coming weeks. The mobile vaccination team will return for scheduled second dose appointments.

Starting Friday (March 26) and running until Sunday (March 28) a pop-up vaccination clinic will be held for Indigenous adults at the Perkins Centre at 1429 Main St. E. Appointments can be made for this clinic by calling the COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7.
