- The Provincial Government is working with each of the province’s 34 public health units (PHUs) to develop and implement efficient and localized solutions that enable Ontario’s one plan. PHUs were asked to consider accessibility issues in their plan and have local solutions, such as mobile clinics and transportation. Vaccine administration rates may differ based on local context.
- Second doses for the COVID-19 vaccine have been extended to a 16-week interval by the Provincial Government.
- Information regarding registration, booking, and sequencing will be available on the COVID-19 Vaccines section of the City’s website at www.hamilton.ca/COVIDvaccines.
- Vaccination phasing and sequencing will continue to be released for additional categories as per the direction of the provincial government.
- All vaccination planning is based on and contingent on available COVID-19 vaccine supply.
- It is vital that members of the public, even those who have been vaccinated, ensure that public health measures still be practiced until it is safe and said to be safe by the health professionals in all levels of government. Public health measures include:
- stay home if you are feeling unwell
