Starting Monday (May 17), Hamilton residents who are eligible will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine at the David Braley Health Sciences Centre — located at the corner of Bay and Main St.

Currently being vaccinated in Hamilton are individuals who are 40 and older, those with an “at-risk health condition,” and people who fall into group 2 of the “cannot work from home” category.

Appointments can be booked online at or by calling the Provincial call centre at 1-888-999-6488.

Certain pharmacies in Hamilton are also administering vaccines to anyone over 17 on a walk-in basis.

According to the Hamilton health care partners, 228,299 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to those 18 and older — which amounts to 44.3 per cent.

Those who do not have access to the internet or a computer, or do not have a valid Ontario photo health card, can call the Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7 to book an appointment.
