Updated 10/10/22

In our practice, the safety and well-being of the Hamilton Cardiology Family (our patients, their families, and our staff) is our highest priority and most important responsibility. We created this COVID-19 page to provide you with the most up to date information regarding the pandemic and vaccination availability.

Hamilton Cardiology Associates encourages all patients to receive the full doses of the COVID-19 vaccine as well as the boosters as recommended by the CDC. Visit the below link for more information about the COVID-19 vaccines:

Reporting Side Effects of the Vaccine 

Everyone who receives the vaccine should be provided with an information sheet at the time of administration that encourages you to download the app on your smart device that will track your symptoms after administration. It allows you to report symptoms directly to the CDC. Once you register on the app, you will receive daily text reminders to “check in” and report how you are feeling.

Office Policies and Protocols

We are looking forward to seeing you in the office for your upcoming appointment. Hamilton Cardiology Associates is taking every precaution to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

On September 23, 2022, the CDC released updated guidelines for interim Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Healthcare Personnel During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic.

Masks are optional for all persons entering any HCA facility (patients, visitors, staff).

Our screening questions for all patients and visitors will be the following:

1) Have you had a positive viral test for SARS-CoV-2 within the past 10 days?

2) Are you experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19?

3) Have you had close contact with someone with SARS-CoV-2 infection within the past 10 days?

If you answer “yes” to any one of these screening questions, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.

We will continue to monitor the community transmission and community level metrics in Mercer county and revise our policy as necessary.

Please Wear a Mask
