Waterloo Region – The Region of Waterloo is partnering with Hourglass HR, a trusted Canadian recruiting and staffing firm, to operate a vaccination clinic at Regional Headquarters, 150 Frederick Street in Kitchener that will be open seven days a week. As Ontario faces a surge in COVID-19 cases due to the highly contagious Omicron variant, the additional health human resources support from Hourglass HR will make it possible to administer more than 2,000 additional third doses per week during the months of January and February.
“We appreciate this opportunity to partner with Hourglass HR and their capacity to operate and staff the regional vaccination clinic at 150 Frederick Street seven days a week,” said Vickie Murray, Lead for the vaccine rollout in Waterloo Region. “Their health human resources capabilities are making it possible for us to get more third doses in arms as quickly as possible.”
Hourglass HR will be operating and staffing the vaccination clinic starting Monday, January 3. This clinic location will be open seven days a week during the months of January and February.
“Hourglass HR is proud to partner with the Region of Waterloo and support the local COVID-19 vaccination initiative,” said Jonathan Cohen, Managing Director of Hourglass HR. “We are excited to grow our Canadian COVID-19 support and offer the citizens of another region a comfortable and efficient solution to get their vaccine. We are thankful for the support of our nurses and team members who set up this clinic during the holiday season so it would be operational this week.”
