Drop-in at pop-up vaccination clinics in the South Okanagan

The clinics will run on certain dates from Aug. 31 to Sept. 24

From Aug. 31 to Sept. 24, Interior Health will be holding pop-up vaccination clinics across the South Okanagan.

The clinics are for anyone born in 2009 or earlier who hasn’t had their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Second doses are available for anyone who has waited 28 days since they received their first dose.

Anyone can walk up, register and get their shots without needing to book an appointment.
