IH hosting school-based COVID-19 vaccine clinics
Interior Health, in partnership with school districts throughout the Interior, is providing at-school COVID-19 immunization clinics for returning students, staff, and teachers.
“Keeping schools open and safe is vital for the social and emotional well-being of students,” said Jennifer Whiteside, Education Minister. “We must all come together to keep students and school staff safe and the best way to do that is to get vaccinated. If you have yet to get your first or second dose of the vaccine, your time is now.”
All age-eligible students, teachers and staff can walk-up, register and receive their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. People are eligible for their second dose 28 days after receiving their first dose. These clinics will occur throughout September as students get back to school.
Schools will promote their clinics locally and Interior Health will regularly update the immunization clinic page as new clinics are confirmed.
Ongoing immunization clinics
People can also get their first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by dropping in to an immunization clinic or making an appointment.
To make an appointment, register online by visiting the provincial website at www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca/, call 1‑833‑838‑2323, or visit a Service BC office listed here, and then book an appointment.
