These eight locations will act as temporary vaccine clinics on the following dates:
- Saltfleet Community Centre, 605 Hwy 8, Stoney Creek – June 8

The clinics are appointment-only, and appointments can be booked through the Provincial online booking system or by calling the Provincial call centre at 1-888-999-6488.
The Pfizer vaccine will be offered at the above clinics, currently being the only vaccine that is authorized by Health Canada for use in individuals 12 and older.
“Hamilton’s vaccine strategy for young people is comprehensive to ensure all young people 12 to 17 years of age who want a vaccine, can do so in a location that can meet their needs,” the city says.
To date, 346,960 doses of the COVD-19 vaccine have been administered in Hamilton, with upwards of 65.2% of residents over the age of 18 and 21.7% of youth ages 12+ receiving a vaccine.
