Mission residents can get their first dose of Covid vaccine today (June 17) and tomorrow thanks to a special neighbourhood clinic being held by Fraser Health at the Mission Activity Centre.
According to Fraser Health, neighbourhood clinics complement the appointment-based clinics currently operating throughout the region, through community partnerships.
They are for first dose vaccinations, supporting specific communities. To avoid long waits for people, neighbourhood residents arriving each day will receive wristbands from organizers and a same day appointment.
Clinic staff will confirm ID to ensure vaccine priority is given to people living in the neighbourhood. Staff will also be available to help people register and book appointments at other clinics if needed.
The clinic runs from noon to 7 p.m. at the activity centre (33100 10th Ave.).
