There are some very frustrated folks out in Vancouver today, thanks to a huge lineup at the Vancouver Convention Centre vaccination clinic.
Some people have reported lineups of over two hours long on social media while waiting for their COVID-19 booster shot.
A few hours ago, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) told people to be prepared for delays due to inclement weather conditions.

In a tweet, hours after the clinic had opened, VCH put out a tweet suggesting they were experiencing some service disruptions.
Due to inclement weather, some Vancouver Coastal Health COVID-19 test centres may be experiencing delays and service interruptions. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience and support.

After closing due to waning demand in vaccines, the Vancouver Convention Centre vaccine clinic was recently reopened to help administer booster doses.
