  • The HNHU has exceeded a major milestone of 150,000 doses vaccine administered so far. To date, 153,293 doses have been administered.
  • In HNHU the population 5 years and older is now 75.3% fully vaccinated and 78.6% at least partially vaccinated.
  • The Province of Ontario exceeded 90% of the 12+ population with at least one dose as of last week.
  • Coverage in Long-term Care Homes is continually increasing and residents are nearly 100% fully vaccinated and staff in these settings are over 85% vaccinated.
  • Vaccination coverage among children 5-11 years in HNHU is 14.2% after just 10 days of eligibility. Pharmacy, hospital, and primary care partners have contributed immensely to this success so far.
  • Youth 12-17 vaccine coverage for at least one dose is up to 65.2% in Haldimand and Norfolk. This continues to be a major target for the HNHU to increase vaccine coverage amongst the eligible populations.
  • As of Monday, December 13, residents 50 years and over will be eligible for booster doses. These doses, like all HNHU doses, can be booked at hnhu.org/popup after that date.
  • Children, youth, and adults are encouraged to book their second doses at 8 weeks after their first doses, if not already fully vaccinated. The 8-week interval is important as the research demonstrates how immune response is stronger with a second dose at or after 8 weeks.
  • New partnership with HNHSS Homelessness Prevention will seek to provide supports for vaccine booking to those who are precariously housed, underhoused, or experiencing homelessness. These clients will be supported in connecting with the COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline to assist in booking appointments.
  • A third dose clinic was held with MCFN partners last week to complete nearly 250 doses. Additional clinics are upcoming for children and adults.
