COVID-19 immunizations available at local pharmacy
B.C.’s age-based immunization program continues to accelerate across the Interior region.
People aged 30 and over may now choose to receive their COVID-19 vaccine from pharmacies in Cranbrook, Castlegar, Kamloops, Kelowna, Lake Country, Penticton, Vernon and West Kelowna.
Wal-Mart Pharmacy (#3183) in Cranbrook is the first and lone pharmacy thus far providing vaccines in the East Kootenay.
The BC Pharmacy Association website lists pharmacies where COVID-19 immunizations are available, and people are reminded to only schedule one appointment, either using the provincial system or with a participating pharmacy directly, Interior Health noted in an April 30 media release.
“Interior Health would like to remind everyone that COVID-19 activity is currently increasing across the region. Vaccinated or not, it is crucial that everyone follows all public health orders and guidance to reduce COVID-19 transmission throughout the community.”
