Fraser Health announced three new COVID-19 pop-up vaccination clinics Tuesday afternoon, two of which are offering the AstraZeneca vaccine to people age 30 and up.
The health authority alerted the public to the pop-up clinics seven minutes after they opened. Soon after, a photo shared by Vaccine Hunters Canada suggests the Coquitlam location already had a line.
No appointment is required at pop-up clinics, and the shots are reserved for residents of high-transmission neighbourhoods.
These two locations are now offering walk-in AstraZeneca shots to hotspot residents age 30 and up:
Cloverdale Recreation Centre (6188 176 St.)
12:30 p.m– 7:00 p.m
Poirier Forum Coquitlam (618 Poirier St.)
12:30 p.m.- 7:00 p.m.
A third location in Surrey is offering vaccines to hotspot residents age 40 and up:
Surrey North (10025 King George Boulevard)
12:30 p.m – 7:00 p.m
Daily Hive has reached out to Fraser Health to ask whether there is still room for more people to join the line. The health authority has not yet responded.
This is the first time hotspot neighbourhood residents below 40 in BC are eligible for vaccination.
