Domestic health planning for COVID clinics in rural areas – Cranbrook Daily Townsman
Interior Health plans community immunization clinics in rural and remote communities.
Clinics are open to people 18 and older who need to receive their COVID-19 booster dose as well as children ages 5-11 to receive the pediatric COVID-19 vaccine.
“At the start of our vaccine rollout this spring, we held vaccination clinics for people living in rural and remote communities to make it easier to get people vaccinated right away,” said Susan Brown, president and CEO of Interior Health. “We are on our way back to these communities to provide booster doses and vaccination of children who are now eligible for pediatric COVID-19 vaccines.”
Clinics will begin in December and community members will be notified directly by Immunizations BC when it is time to book an appointment. For a complete list of immunization clinics, please visit https://www.interiorhealth.ca/health-and-wellness/disease-outbreaks/covid-19/immunization-clinics.
To get an invitation to make an appointment, adults and children must be registered at www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca/ or call 1-833-838-2323.
People 12 and older who still need their first or second dose are also encouraged to make an appointment or visit these clinics.
