IH planning whole community vaccine clinics
Interior Health (IH) is planning whole community immunization clinics in rural and remote communities for people 18 and older who are due for their COVID-19 booster dose and for children age five to 11 to get the COVID-19 paediatric vaccine.
“Early in our vaccine rollout this spring, we held immunizations clinics for people living in rural and remote communities to make it easier for people to get vaccinated right away,” said Interior Health president and CEO, Susan Brown. “We are on the way back to these communities to provide booster doses and immunization for kids who are now eligible for paediatric COVID-19 vaccines.”
Clinics are beginning in December and these community members will be notified directly by Immunizations BC when it is time to book their appointment.
To get your invitation to book your appointment, you and your child(ren) must be registered with www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca/ or call 1-833-838-2323.
In addition, people 12 and older who still need their first or second doses are welcome to book an appointment or drop-in at these clinics.
