A number of COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Hamilton will begin accepting walk-ins Saturday (Jan. 15) for booster doses.

The City says the decision was made in an effort to increase access and provide greater protection against the virus.

Additionally, the City has opened fourth dose eligibility for immunocompromised community members.

The following clinics will accept walk-ins for third doses:

  • Mountain Vaccine Clinic at Lime Ridge Mall
  • David Braley Health Sciences Centre (DBHSC) Vaccine Clinic at 100 Main St. W.
  • Centre on Barton at 1211 Barton St. E. (18-plus only)
  • St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton West 5th Campus at 100 West 5th St. (12-plus only)
  • All Hamilton Public Health Services mobile vaccine clinics
  • Refuge Newcomer Health Vaccine Clinic at the Hamilton Public Library at 571 Barton St.

Meanwhile, individuals who are 18-and-old and immunocompromised can book an appointment to receive a fourth dose at hamilton.ca/COVIDvaccines. Three months (84) must pass in between doses. Eligible individuals can show a current prescription receipt from a pharmacy or the medication bottle or packaging that includes the date of prescription, their first and last name, and the address and phone number of the pharmacy to receive their fourth dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

To date, 85.7 per cent of eligible Hamiltonians have received a vaccine to date, and 80.5 per cent are fully vaccinated. 44 per cent of children aged five to 11 have received a first dose.
