Fraser Health authority will be hosting a 32-hour “Vax-a-thon” in Surrey this weekend.

The first-ever, all-night event will take place at the Guildford Recreation Centre. Running from Saturday, June 19 at 11 am to Sunday, June 20 at 7 pm, approximately 7,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine will be available for people eligible to receive a first dose.

If you’re planning to attend on Saturday evening, however, prepare yourself for a mask-erade. Visitors are invited to “dress to impress” with their fanciest masks. Afterwards, they can strut down the red carpet and snap a picture to remember at the selfie station.

Throughout the 32-hour event, participants will be able to enjoy live music, physically distanced entertainment, and a number of door prizes.

Appointments will be open to anyone above the age of 12 who needs first doses. Visitors can register and book in advance or book a same-day appointment while they’re available.

All Fraser Health residents are welcome, including those without personal health numbers, vulnerable residents, and people who are not residents of British Columbia.
