In the past several weeks, Interior Health has been sending mobile immunization clinics around to more rural areas in an effort to get more and more people vaccinated against COVID-19.

The latest destination for the mobile clinic is Canal Flats.

Interior Health’s mobile immunization clinic will make a stop in Canal Flats on June 30 for anyone who has not yet received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

No advance appointments are necessary for this clinic. People who live or work in the Canal Flats area will be able to walk-up, register and receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Interior Health’s mobile immunization clinics are a partnership with the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA), and are travelling through the Interior region, making stops in over 40 communities along the way.
