Haven’t been vaccinated? Walk-ins available everywhere

With almost three quarters of persons 12 and up having had one shot of COVID vaccine and almost half of Hamiltonians fully vaccinated, Public Health is making it easier for those who have not had a shot to get one.

Effective today, all members of the community ages 12+ who would like a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are encouraged to walk-in into any large-scale vaccination clinic in Hamilton (FirstOntario Centre vaccine clinic, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton’s West 5th vaccine clinic and Hamilton Health Sciences’ Wellington Street vaccine clinic), the employer-led ArcelorMittal Dofasco vaccine clinic and Hamilton Public Health Services mobile pop-up clinics (as they are announced) to receive one.
