Hamilton’s COVID-19 vaccination program expands to include adults aged 70+

The Hamilton healthcare partners continue to make progress in vaccinating members of the community who fall into Phase 1 of the Province’s COVID-19 Vaccination Framework. We are pleased to announce that to date, we have administered approximately 87,945 doses of COVD-19 vaccine – with 12% of eligible Hamiltonians receiving a vaccine to date.

In alignment with Provincial direction, effective immediately, those residents in Hamilton who are 70 years of age and older are eligible to book an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

Booking an appointment at a large-scale clinic. Members of the public can access the Provincial online booking portal found at www.hamilton.ca/VaccineBooking. For those who do not have access to the internet or a computer, or do not have a valid Ontario photo health card, please call the Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7 to book an appointment. Due to potential call volumes expected at the call centre, the City of Hamilton encourages everyone to self-register online if able to so, it’s the quickest process to get an appointment. The hotline is trying to focus on those without health cards and those without computer access. These are all by-appointment only clinics, walk-ins are not permitted.

Booking an appointment at a mobile pop-up clinic. Members of the public can call the Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7. A list of mobile pop-up clinics can be found by visiting www.hamilton.ca/VaccineBooking, or through the hotline. Due to potential call volumes expected at the call centre, we ask that those who are calling for an appointment are patient and call back if the lines are busy. These are all by-appointment only clinics, walk-ins are not permitted.
