If St Catharines residents were hoping to get their walk-in vaccinations at the Seymour-Hannah clinic, they have three days left to do so.

Unless there is an unexpected resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Niagara Region, Seymour-Hannah, the busiest clinic in the region with 260,000 jabs on its scoresheet, will close its doors on August 15.

However, the city is not being left high and dry. A new vaccination clinic will open in the Mental Health Outpatient Clinic at the St. Catharines Site on August 17 and will serve approximately 200 patients per day.

The new clinic will operate from 8 am to 4 pm. seven days a week and will offer both walk-in and booked appointments.

With 630,590 vaccinations on the books in Niagara Region, 71 per cent of the region’s residents have been given one dose while 63 per cent are fully vaccinated.

School kids, ages 12 to 17, have seen 61 per cent receive a shot while 46 per cent are fully vaccinated – impressive numbers since they were the last group to be offered the vaccines.

Meanwhile, Niagara college and university students in the 18 to 29 age group are presently sitting at 63 percent single dose and 50 per cent fully vaccinated.
