You’ll be seeing more Provincial GO-VAXX Bus clinics over the next month or so in Hamilton; especially if you live in an area with a low rate of vaccinated individuals.

“With back-to-school around the corner, 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 spokesperson on behalf of the Hamilton health care partners.
