Fraser Health staging all-night 'Vax-a-thon' with costumes, prizes and 7,000 doses

Event open to anyone in Fraser Health for their first dose
People deemed clinically extremely vulnerable have been prioritized for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fraser Health has announced its first-ever all-night Vax-a-thon.

From 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 19, to 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 20, approximately 7,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine will be available to eligible people needing their first dose at the Guildford Recreation Centre in Surrey.

“Those who attend this special clinic will enjoy live music and other exciting, physically-distanced entertainment while receiving their COVID-19 immunization,” said a news release. “They will also have a chance to receive generous donated door prizes.”

The event will transition into an overnight Mask-erade around 8 p.m.

“Dress to impress by wearing your fanciest mask or come as you are when you attend our nighttime immunization clinic,” said Fraser Health. “After receiving your first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, commemorate the moment by strutting down the red carpet and posing for a picture at our selfie station.”

Appointments are open to anyone 12 years and older for first dose COVID-19 immunization. Register and book in advance or same-day appointments available while supplies last. All Fraser Health residents are welcome, including those without personal health numbers, vulnerable people and/or people who are not residents of B.C.

Staff are available on-site to help people register and book appointments at other clinics throughout the region if needed, and can help answer all vaccine-related questions.
