Councillor Partridge continues to advocate for our local Flamborough Farmers and migrant farm workers to receive vaccines – Hamilton Public Health Services is in the planning stages for local vaccine clinics for those temporary farm workers who have arrived in Canada. Staff are preparing vaccine information to go out to our local farms shortly.
The Province ran an initial pilot project this past weekend to offer COVID-19 vaccines to migrant farm workers arriving at Toronto’s international airport. The government will follow up with farms to administer the second dose through their local public health unit. The program will become permanent after implementing changes from Saturday’s initial pilot, with plans to offer shots to more arriving workers.
