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.
As of Sept. 21, 85 per cent of those 12 and older have had their first doses in the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows region, and 82 per cent had second doses.
