72 per cent of Hamilton adults received at least one dose as COVID-19 mobile vaccination clinics expand
Parts of Hamilton’s east end have disproportionately lower COVID-19 vaccination rates and as a result, they’ll be getting extra attention this weekend. Public Health announced that a mobile pop-up clinic will be set up at Sir Winston Churchhill Secondary School at 1715 Main St. East on June 19 and 20.
“These clinics have been located in areas of the City with lower vaccination coverage rates in order to improve access to the vaccine,” said Public Health.
Appointments can be made by booking an appointment through the Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7 or through a community ambassador.
To date, approximately 430,192 doses of COVD-19 vaccine have been administered with upwards of 71.5 per cent of Hamiltonians over the age of 18 and 51.9 per cent of youth over 12 receiving a vaccine to date.
