One of Burnaby’s COVID-19 vaccination sites will be closing down in August, according to Fraser Health.
The site at the Christine Sinclair Community Centre on Kensington Avenue will have its final day of operation on Aug. 22. The drive-through site on the grounds of BCIT will remain open.
More than two million COVID-19 doses have now been administered in the Fraser Health region. In our region, over 80% of all eligible people have been immunized with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine and over 60% of people have now received their second dose.
“We continue to ramp up our pop-up clinics, mobile clinics, outreach clinics and community initiatives to meet people where they are congregating so access to vaccine is easy,” said a Fraser Health news release. “As new initiatives are underway and vaccine rates increase, it is a natural transition for the provincial immunization program to move to new models as planned. For Fraser Health, we will transition from our distributed network of immunization clinics into a hub model, utilizing our existing clinics in Abbotsford, Coquitlam, Surrey and North Delta to ensure vaccine remains available in a mass clinics setting as well.”
Starting July 29, mass immunization clinics are now at:
- Abbotsford Ag Rec (offering both COVID-19 testing and immunizations),
- Poirier Forum
- Guildford Rec Centre and
- North Delta Rec Centre
