Kim Young received this info from Creston Public Health and submitted it to Mainstreet:
“Due to the Province’s decision to move up second doses of the Covid vaccine, we will be holding clinics at the Crawford Bay school on June 4th-6th (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). These will be larger clinics with more immunizers and will be open to anyone who is due for their second dose of vaccine or anyone who has not received their first dose. Those in the younger age group of 12-17 year olds are very much welcome. The hours of operation will be 9:00-3:30. We strongly recommend individuals make an appointment, but we will make every attempt to accommodate drop ins. Individuals will need to book their appointments online or by phone by visiting: getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca or call 1-833-838-2323. Appointments are currently being created in the ImmsBC system and should be available to book into early next week. Please do not call the Creston Health Centre if there are no appointments available. Please wait another day and try again. Sometimes there are delays in getting appointments into the booking system.”
ALSO: If you previously registered to receive your second vaccine, you should be receiving an email (or text) invitation soon to make your appointment.
Note: those who are booking their 2nd dose will get a text or email reading as follows:
