Interior Health’s #journey2immunity has kicked into gear with the introduction of mobile immunization clinics across the Interior Health region.
The clinics will travel across the province to target rural and remote communities and other hard-to-reach populations, providing first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible people who are 12+ (born in 2009 or earlier).
Pre-booked appointments will not be required.
“We know that the best way to ensure that everyone who wants a vaccine is able to get one is by removing as many barriers to access as possible,” said Interior Health president and CEO, Susan Brown.
“These two mobile clinics are heading out on a road trip that will make it easier for many people in the Interior to get their COVID-19 vaccine in their home community.”
One mobile immunization clinic will travel through communities in the South Okanagan, Kootenay Boundary and East Kootenay, making initial stops in Big White, Peachland, Okanagan Falls, Hedley and Princeton.
The second will complete the journey through the North Okanagan and Thompson Cariboo Shuswap regions, stopping first in Cherryville, Lumby, the Okanagan Indian Band, Falkland and Armstrong.
Interior Health has worked with provincial partners to design and implement the mobile clinics and will partner with the media to inform communities when the mobile vaccination clinic will be near them.
