Golden vaccine clinic opens up drop-ins again

Drop-ins are being facilitated at the Civic Centre, appointments at the hospital.

Golden’s vaccine clinic will once again be accepting walk in patients, with the addition of a drop-in clinic at the Civic Centre starting on Wednesday, Oct.13.

The clinic will be every Wednesday until Nov. 3 and will be open from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Vaccines will also be available at the health unit located at the hospital, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The hospital will be by appointment only.

The fastest option to secure an appointment is to register online at the government of BC website.

At least one dose of the vaccine is now required for certain non-essential services.

Full vaccination is required by Oct. 24, which is defined as being seven days after your second dose.

Vaccination registration is now open for children aged 5-11, as the province begins to prepare to vaccinate those under the age of 12 in November, pending Health Canada’s approval.

Golden boasts 90 per cent vaccine coverage in those 12+, and 82 per cent full vaccination.
