  • ​The population over the age of five is now 81.8% vaccinated with at least one dose and 78.9% fully vaccinated. Over 53% of adults aged 18+ have received their booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • The HNHU is pleased to offer a new series of vaccine clinics in libraries across Haldimand and Norfolk counties. These familiar and comfortable spaces are a convenient and easy way for individuals of any age to receive a COVID-19 vaccine dose.
  • 12 to 17-year-olds are eligible to receive their booster dose 6 months (168 days) after their second dose.
  • Appointments for first, second, and booster doses are available across the two counties and across various channels, including public health clinics, hospital clinics, primary care, pharmacies, and pop-ups like the GO-VAXX bus. Appointments can be booked at www.hnhu.org/popup.
  • The HNHU has a supply of Moderna, Pfizer, and pediatric Pfizer to support all individuals ages 5 and over to receive the vaccine of their choice. Small amounts of the Johnson and Johnson (J&J) or AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccines are also available by request. Novavax is expected to be available to interested residents in the coming weeks. To request J&J, AZ, or Novavax, please contact the Vaccine Hotline at [email protected] or 519-427-5903.
  • The HNHU and  Norfolk General Hospital (NGH) are pleased to be able to offer walk-ins for all eligible individuals (i.e. ages 5-years and older for any dose number) at all clinics.
  • The HNHU continues to remind residents that being fully vaccinated and receiving a booster is the most effective way to protect yourself from severe COVID-19 infection, including infection with the Omicron variant.
  • The National Advisory Committee on Immunizations (NACI) has updated their recommendation for five to 11-year-olds to strongly recommend the vaccine for this age group. Getting children vaccinated is an important way to protect them. Children can book an appointment or walk-in to any clinic hosted at NGH or HNHU. A schedule can be found on the booking tool at www.hnhu.org/popup.
  • If you have recently had COVID-19 you are still eligible for a first, second, or booster dose of vaccine. Residents should wait until they are out of isolation and symptoms have resolved to receive their next dose. The NACI recommendation for the COVID-19 vaccine after COVID-19 infection is to wait up to three months after infection to receive the next dose.
