Niagara Health’s COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre continues to make significant progress in our fight against COVID-19, with more than 95,000 doses administered at the clinic.
If supply allows, we can continue to vaccinate approximately 1,650 people per day. Overall, more than 35 per cent of the Niagara community has received a first dose through the region’s vaccination efforts.
We are pleased to share that the vaccination clinic located at the Seymour-Hannah arena in St. Catharines has dedicated appointments for Canada Border Services Agency inspection officers and Public Health Agency of Canada quarantine staff, both designated as priority groups through the provincial guidelines. Appointments take place beginning today and will extend until the end of the day on Sunday, May 9.
In addition, the following groups are now eligible for vaccination, with more groups to be added throughout the month of May:
- Residents aged 50+
- High-risk health conditions
- Group one of workers who cannot work from home
- First Nations, Inuit and Métis
As Niagara Health continues to face significant pressures in the hospital, we strongly urge the community to follow public health measures to minimize further increases in COVID-19 cases. This includes masking, physical distancing, handwashing, staying home and getting vaccinated when you are able to do so.
