The City of Burnaby has partnered with Fraser Health to try and make it easier for Burnaby residents to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine
The two have organized upcoming drop-in neighbourhood clinics at Alan Emmott Centre and Confederation Community Centre for Seniors.
First-dose vaccinations will be provided to Burnaby residents on a first-come, first-served basis the following dates and locations:
June 14 and 15: Alan Emmott Centre (6650 Southoaks Ct.), 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
June 23: Confederation Community Centre for Seniors (4585 Albert St.), 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
These neighbourhood clinics are intended to get first doses vaccinations to residents who have not yet received one. As of BCCDC’s June 8 update, 75% of Burnaby residents over the age of 12 had received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
In addition to the neighbourhood clinics, all eligible B.C. residents can continue to book appointments through www.gov.bc.ca/getvaccinated. To date, thousands of people have received doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at clinics located at the BCIT campus and the Christine Sinclair Community Centre.
For residents who need assistance with transportation to any of Burnaby’s vaccine clinics, Fraser Health has partnered with transportation agencies to offer a ride program. Visit: fraserhealth.ca/bookaride.
