You no longer need an appointment to get your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at Niagara Health’s vaccination clinic at the Seymour-Hannah arena. Now, anyone 12 years of age and older can come to the clinic at any time for their first dose.
Effective immediately, we are offering this walk-in option to make it as easy and quick as possible for people who haven’t been protected against COVID-19 to get their vaccine.
“Vaccines help protect everyone from serious illness associated with COVID-19 and drastically reduces the chances of transmitting it to others,” said Dr. Karim Ali, Director, Division of Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship Program, and Pandemic Preparedness Lead at Niagara Health.
“Everyone has a role to play in our ability to safely and effectively return to some normalcy. If you are able to, getting your first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine is a critical step. COVID-19 anywhere is COVID-19 everywhere, and the Delta variant has reinforced how critical it is to get as many people vaccinated as soon possible.”
According to Niagara Region Public Health, unvaccinated people account for 95% of COVID-19 cases between December 2020 and June 2021.
We also continue to offer a limited number of walk-in appointments for second doses daily between 2 and 4 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Seymour-Hannah clinic, located at 240 St. Paul Street West in St. Catharines, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. most days (dependent on scheduling and supply) and offers free parking. For more information, please visit https://www.niagarahealth.on.ca/site/vaccination-clinic
Please continue to follow all public health measures, such as wearing a mask, physically distancing, washing your hands and self-isolating if you’re sick.
