Flu, COVID & Cold Clinic

St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton has reached a pivotal moment in a three-year campaign to protect the health and safety of our patients, healthcare workers and the community. The COVID-19 Testing and Assessment Centre and the Flu, COVID and Cold Clinic at the West 5th Campus will be closed at the end of this month. The move is in response to a sustained drop in the prevalence of COVID-19 and a decline in appointment bookings for testing, attributed to uptake in vaccinations, higher levels of immunity, and declining circulation of the virus in the community.

The last day of operation for both the Testing and Assessment Centre and the Flu, COVID and Cold Clinic was Friday, March 31, 2023.

Following March 31, ready access to COVID-19 testing in the community through most pharmacies is available for the public. Visit the City of Hamilton COVID-19 Testing web page for a list of participating pharmacies.

We also encourage everyone to know all of their health-care options:

  • If this is an emergency, call 9-1-1.
  • Contact your family doctor.
  • Go to to learn more.

The success of this Clinic would not have been possible had it not been for the commitment and resolve of St. Joe’s dedicated healthcare workers and our partners from family health teams. We are proud of your efforts and thank everyone who had a hand in helping us reach this milestone.
