St Catharines residents, age 12 and up, will no longer need appointments to get their COVID-19 vaccination at the Seymour-Hannah clinic on St. Paul Street West.

“Effective immediately, we are offering this walk-in option to make it as easy and quick as possible for people who haven’t been protected against COVID-19 to get their vaccine,” the City said in a release.

Dr Karim Ali, Director, Division of Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship Program, and Pandemic Preparedness Lead at Niagara Health, said that the Delta variant of the virus should put all residents on guard to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

“Everyone has a role to play in our ability to safely and effectively return to some normalcy. If you are able to, getting your first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine is a critical step,” Ali said.

He added: “COVID-19 anywhere is COVID-19 everywhere, and the Delta variant has reinforced how critical it is to get as many people vaccinated as soon as possible.”

According to Niagara Region Public Health, unvaccinated people account for 95% of COVID-19 cases between December 2020 and June 2021.

The clinic will continue to offer a limited number of walk-in appointments for second doses daily between 2 and 4 pm on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Seymour-Hannah clinic, located at 240 St. Paul Street West, is open from 9 am to 5 pm most days (dependent on scheduling and supply) and offers free parking.
