Dear Patients:

The Media Release of March 3rd, 2021 announcing the start of primary care practices in Hamilton administering the AstraZeneca vaccine to patients ages 60 – 64 is very good news. However, this is a pilot study and is only being offered to a few clinics and sites in the City of Hamilton at this time.

It is hoped that they will expand this program in the coming weeks. If/when we receive the approval to run a Southwest Clinic our office is well prepared to call all patients that meet the criteria and organize vaccination clinics quickly.

For up-to-date information please access:

The Hamilton Public Health portal:

Please note that the vaccine offered will be decided by Public health. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Dear patients,


We received important information from the City of Hamilton today about COVID19 vaccination for Hamilton residents 85 years and older.

With the current vaccine supply, vaccination can begin at last for our patients who are 85 years and older. Those 80 to 84 years of age will become eligible over the coming weeks.

To quickly begin scheduling appointments, those who are 85 years + in this calendar year and live in Hamilton and who have received care at a Hamilton hospital or a Hamilton hospital clinic over the past six months will be contacted by the hospital with an appointment time beginning today.

If you are 85 years or older, have NOT received care at a Hamilton hospital or a Hamilton hospital clinic over the past six months, and would like to register for a vaccine, please call the Public Health Services COVID-19 Hotline at 905-974-9848, option 7. PLEASE NOTE - CALL VOLUME IS VERY HIGH ON THIS PHONE LINE SO PLEASE BE PATIENT AND KEEP TRYING.
