As Hamilton’s health care partners continue to ramp up COVID-19 vaccine accessibility for neighbourhoods with the lowest rates of vaccination, an additional 40 mobile clinics were announced.

Dubbed the Last Mile Strategy, neighbourhoods with lower coverage rates are being given access to information tailored to their needs, as well as more clinic availability.

“With a return to more indoor settings as it gets cooler, it’s vital that vaccination coverage continues to increase and that all Hamiltonians follow public health measures to reduce the spread of the virus,” reads an official media release from public health.

To date, 871,132 doses of COVD-19 vaccine have been administered in Hamilton with 85.6 per cent of eligible residents receiving a vaccine to date. 82.2 per cent are fully vaccinated.
