The province’s GO-VAXX mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic is once again coming to McMaster’s campus with clinics being held on Tuesday, March 8th and Wednesday, March 16th.
As the pandemic continues, public health experts are urging everyone to get vaccinated and to get a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine which can help increase one’s immune response to the virus.
The clinic is open to McMaster students, faculty and staff as well as to members of the Hamilton community for first, second and third doses. Children aged five and up can receive vaccinations at the clinic.
Appointments for the clinic can be booked through the province’s booking portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact centre at 1-833-943-3900.
Walk-ins are available depending on the supply of vaccines.
Appointments for the March 16th clinic can be booked online starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 12th.
