Pop-up vaccine clinics coming to the cities

After the mass vaccine clinics wrapped up in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, the two cities have been getting a few pop-up clinics. The cities will soon be getting a few more pop-up clinics.

On Sept. 23, Maple Ridge will be getting a pop-up clinic at the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction at 22522 Lougheed Highway, between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This will be a neighbourhood clinic with walk-in for first and second doses, until supplies last.

Pitt Meadows will get a vaccine clinic through the Mobile Vaccine Bus at the Meadowtown Centre, on Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This will also be a walk-in clinic for both, first and second doses, and no appointment will be required.

On Aug. 14, the mass vaccination clinic at Haney Place Mall was shut down after Fraser Health decided to move towards more mobile and pop-up clinic options to serve the remaining people not vaccinated against the virus. Since then, the city has had a few pop-up clinics including through the mobile bus and at the Haney Farmers Market.
