With September and back-to-school quickly approaching, getting strong protection against COVID-19 and the Delta variant is especially important. To be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at the start of the school year, you must receive your first dose by July 27, 2021, and your second dose no later than August 24, 2021.
Hamilton Public Health Services is encouraging community members ages 12 and over to get a COVID-19 vaccine, as soon as possible, to protect those they love, and get back to what they love. COVID-19 has had a devasting impact on many of Hamilton’s young people, including their emotional well-being due to the social isolation brought on by remote learning and other public health restrictions. To ensure this coming school year can be as normal as possible, increasing local vaccination coverage rates is the best way to protect school communities from the spread of COVID-19 and its variants.
There are many locations in Hamilton for community members to get their first and second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, such as large-scale clinics, primary care-led clinics, mobile pop-up clinics and local pharmacies. Vaccines can be accessed both on a walk-in basis at many of these locations or by booking an appointment. Information regarding walk-in options, booking an appointment and frequently asked questions are available at hamilton.ca/GetYourVaccine
