The Hamilton healthcare partners announced additional mobile vaccination pop-up clinics Friday (Apr. 16).
They will address the city’s “hot spots” by vaccinating those who are 50-and-over in five designated postal code regions: L9C, L8W, L8L, L8N, and L9K.
Public Health says approximately 145,321 doses of the COVD-19 vaccine have been administered, which amounts to 25.4 per cent of eligible Hamiltonians.
The mobile clinics are scheduled for Monday (Apr. 19), Tuesday (Apr. 20), and Wednesday (Apr. 21) at the following locations between the hours of 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.:
- Chedoke Twin Pad Arena (91 Chedmac Dr., L9C 7R5)
- Salvation Army Mountain Citadel (835 Stone Church Rd. E., L8W 1R8)
- Salvation Army Meadowlands (187 Stone Church Rd. W., L9K 0A3)
Eligible residents can call the Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7 for an appointment at a mobile hot spot pop-up clinic.
Due to potential call volumes expected at the call centre, Public Health is asking that those who are calling for an appointment are patient and call back if the lines are busy.
Members of the public, who are 50-plus and live in the L9C and L8W postal codes can book an appointment at a large-scale clinic online using the Provincial booking portal found at hamilton.ca/VaccineBooking.
Proof of address must be shown when arriving for an appointment if eligibility is due to a hot spot address.
