Interior Health accelerating second doses of COVID-19 vaccine throughout region
Interior Health’s #journey2immunity COVID-19 vaccination campaign continues to accelerate throughout the region.
Approximately 675,000 doses of vaccine have now been administered and more are on the way as drop-in hours expand and mobile immunization clinics travel across the Interior.
“I want to thank the hundreds of thousands of people who have visited our immunization clinics,” said Interior Health president and CEO Susan Brown. “We appreciate your ongoing support as more people become eligible for second doses, we will keep clinics running as smoothly as possible to get everyone fully immunized. Interior Health is constantly reviewing and adjusting clinic capacity, including adding more appointments where needed.”
“For anyone who has not yet had their first dose – it is not too late. You can register and make an appointment to get your vaccine, and in many communities, there is also drop-in access available to make it as easy as possible,” said Brown.
The Interior’s vaccine rollout is a coordinated effort between Interior Health and the First Nations Health Authority. To date, immunizers across the region have delivered 520,998 first doses and 154,848 second doses for a total of 675,846 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
