Hamilton records two more COVID-19 deaths over the weekend – TheSpec.com

Published

 on


Hamilton recorded two new COVID-19 deaths over the weekend as active case counts crept back above 400.

The city reported 79 new coronavirus cases and 431 active cases Sunday, up from 35 and 378 Saturday.

It marks the first time active cases have increased since Feb. 28.

One person in their 60s and one person in their 70s were reported to have died Saturday and Sunday, respectively. A total 287 people in Hamilton have died due to complications with COVID-19.

Presumed cases of fast-spreading coronavirus variants in the city crossed the 100-mark this weekend.

On Sunday, public health reported 106 presumed cases of the variants, which are more contagious and believed to cause more severe illness.

That’s up 18 from the 88 presumed cases reported Friday and nearly triple the 37 presumed cases reported Feb. 26.

All coronavirus cases in Ontario are screened for the variants that first appeared in the U.K., South Africa and Brazil. Cases that screen positive for a variant are then sent to a lab for confirmation. Nearly all of those cases end up being confirmed, according to Hamilton’s medical officer of health.

To date, Hamilton has had four confirmed cases of the B.1.1.7 strain, which originated in the U.K.

The city’s active outbreak total is now at 28 after four outbreaks were declared and three were ended over the weekend.

The Meadows Long Term Care Home in Ancaster entered outbreak protocol Thursday after one staff member became infected with COVID-19.

One teacher and one student tested positive at Orchard Park Secondary School on Friday.

Three staff members at Red Hill Toyota at 2333 Barton St. E. were reported to be infected in an outbreak declared Saturday.

Outbreaks at I.H. Mission Service and Aug. 8 on Wilson Street were ended Saturday. An outbreak at Juravinski Hospital Unit M2 — where eight people were infected and two died since it was declared Feb. 19 — ended Sunday.

The new COVID cases reported over the weekend bring Hamilton’s pandemic total to 10,801. Ninety-two per cent of those — 9,909 — have recovered.

15 COVID-19 vaccines allegedly given to non-priority groups in Hamilton | News – Daily Hive

Published

 on


Officials near Toronto are investigating after city staff allegedly doled out more than a dozen COVID-19 vaccines “inappropriately.”

In a release, Hamilton Public Health Services said it had received reports from staff that three employees had administered vaccines to non-priority groups.

Approximately 15 doses were given to ineligible individuals at a mobile vaccination clinic, the health unit said.

Under Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccination plan, only certain priority groups, such as those over the age of 80 and health care workers, are currently able to receive a vaccine.

“The City is committed to ensuring that COVID-19 vaccines are administered in a way that is fair, equitable, and based on criteria that prioritizes those that are most in need,” said Dr. Elizabeth Richardson, Hamilton’s Medical Officer of Health.

“Any actions designed to circumvent the vaccine program’s eligibility criteria are unethical and unacceptable.”

While the investigation continues, the three employees have been placed on paid leave, which the health united noted is standard practice.

Hamilton Public Health Services said it would be reminding staff about their “professional obligation” to follow the province’s COVID-19 vaccine prioritization framework.

To date, Ontario has seen 308,296 COVID-19 cases and 7,067 virus-related deaths.

Northern Health to open 30 COVID vaccine clinics for oldest residents, Indigenous seniors – Caledonia Courier

Published

 on


Northern Health’s oldest residents, Indigenous seniors and elders will be able to book a COVID-19 vaccination starting on Monday (March 8) in 30 communities across the region.

The only people eligible to book appointments on Monday will be seniors aged 90 and up, Indigenous seniors aged 65 and up and Indigenous elders. There will be 30 clinics set up across 26 communities. Those wishing to sign up for a vaccine are asked to call only when their age bracket is eligible for a vaccine. Most clinics will use Pfizer vaccines, while a few will use the Modena vaccine.

Overall, Northern Health said it plans to vaccinate 15,000 people between March 15 and April 10 as part of the Phase Two effort. Vaccine clinics will operate at different times in different communities. To find out more, visit: https://www.northernhealth.ca/health-topics/covid-19-vaccine-plan.

To book, seniors, or someone calling on behalf of a senior, can call 1-844-255-7555 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. PT starting on Monday. Call centres will be open seven days a week. When calling, have the personal health number of the individual being vaccinated available. Be advised that staff will not ask for credit card information or payment.

Northern Health CEO Cathy Ulrich said that vaccine teams are already immunizing people who cannot travel to a clinic, and that callers will be asked if they can get to their clinic when they call. Northern Health will be keeping track of people who call in but miss their communities vaccine clinic dates and potentially return to that community later in Phase Two. People who miss Phase Two vaccinations in their own communities can travel to a neighbouring one or get vaccinated during Phase Three.
