How Hamiltonians who received an AstraZeneca jab can sign up for second doses
Hamilton Public Health Services are reminding residents whose first COVID-19 vaccination was AstraZeneca that they have have two options for receiving a second dose.
On Saturday, after significant public pressure, the province lowered the second-dose wait time for recipients of the AstraZeneca vaccine to eight weeks.
People who are opting to receive a second dose of AstraZeneca can book an appointment through the pharmacy or primary care provider where the first dose was received. A list of available primary care clincis is available at hamilton.ca/VaccineBooking.
Those who want an mRNA (Moderna or Pfizer) vaccine should go through the provincial booking system (1-888-999-6488). The city’s site also contains links to the provincial booking system.
Refusing Moderna & holding out for Pfizer is like being caught in a downpour but refusing a ride from a friend's Lamborghini bc another friend in a Ferrari "might" be in the area. Both deliver you home safely at mach speed. #GetInGetVaxxed #FastLane2Freedom— Abdu Sharkawy (@SharkawyMD) June 14, 2021
