In addition to a new mobile COVID-19 testing unit, the City of Hamilton has scheduled over a dozen mobile vaccination clinics for the last two weeks of October.

That includes three visits from the province’s distinctive green GO-VAXX bus.

“With 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,” a city media released stated Friday.

Hamilton, per provincial tracking, is one of only four public health units in Ontario that has yet to fully vaccinate at least 80 per cent of its eligible population. It is currently at 79.41 per cent, or 31st in the province. Toronto is 30th at 80.25.

Waterloo Region (86.53) and Ottawa (85.62) have the high coverage among larger centres in the population.

Starting Monday, a string of clinics will be held at libraries, food banks, public health clinics and recreation centres:

The GO-VAXX bus will be posted in three different locations from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 27, 28 and 31.
