Interior Health’s mobile immunization clinic will make a stop in Oliver on June 15 for anyone who has not yet received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

No advance appointments are necessary for this clinic. People who live or work in the Oliver area will be able to walk-up, register and receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Interior Health’s mobile immunization clinics are a partnership with the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA), and are travelling through the Interior region, making stops in over 40 communities along the way.

The drop-in location in Oliver will be located at the Visitor Information Centre (6431 Station Street) Tuesday, June 15 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Everyone in the Oliver area who are born in 2009 or earlier, and who have not yet received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are eligible to get vaccinated.

Oliver residents who are not able to attend the mobile immunization clinic can still receive a vaccine at other times by booking an appointment through the provincial system and visiting a nearby clinic.

Drop-in clinics are for first dose only; second dose notifications are sent by email, phone, or text when it is time to book an appointment.
