New Westminster residents may soon be able to get their COVID-19 shots at Anvil Centre.
The Fraser Health Authority announced Tuesday it has opened five mass immunization clinics in Chilliwack, Cloverdale, South Surrey, Delta North and Coquitlam, and plans are in the works to open four more in New Westminster, Burnaby, Surrey and Langley.
“These new clinics will support our current immunization plans and will remain open through phases three and four as we work to immunize our communities over the coming months,” stated a Fraser Health news release.
The mass clinics are being housed in shopping malls, recreation centres and conference centres, like the one planned for Anvil Centre at 777 Columbia St.
As the new clinics come online, Fraser Health said some of its previous clinics will either close or be repurposed.

“We would like to thank our municipalities, community organizations, business leaders, Divisions of Family Practice, and staff and medical staff for their continued dedication in supporting Fraser Health’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” stated the press release.
People who are eligible to book their COVID-19 vaccine can do so online by using the 24/7 booking tool or by calling Fraser Health’s COVID-19 immunization booking phone line at 1-855-755-2455.
Translation services are available to those who need them at the call centre and at the immunization clinics.
