Hamilton Public Health is partnering with CF Lime Ridge Mall to hold “back-to-school mobile vaccine clinics” ahead of the school year.
The clinics will run over the long weekend from Sept. 3 to Sept. 5, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. It will be located on the upper level of the mall, near entrance five beside La Vie en Rose.
The City says the clinic provides students and their families an opportunity to get their back-to-school supplies and a COVID-19 vaccine.
“With back-to-school next week, and a return to more indoor settings in the Fall, it’s vital that Hamilton’s vaccination coverage continues to increase and that all Hamiltonians follow public health measures to reduce the spread of the virus,” said a public health spokesperson.
CF Lime Ridge will provide the first 500 community members who receive their first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at the mobile clinic a $5 gift card — redeemable at all CF malls across Canada.
Community members born in 2009 and earlier can enter the clinic without an appointment.
“The safety of our community of shoppers and employees is our top priority,” said Liem Vu, General Manager, CF Lime Ridge. “We’re proud to partner with the City of Hamilton to host a pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic ahead of the school season to provide another convenient option for community members to get their first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.”
To date, over 76 per cent of Hamilton youth between the ages of 12 and 17 had received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. 63.5 per cent are fully vaccinated.Insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
