THE City of Delta announced on Monday that following its lobbying efforts led by Mayor George V. Harvie, Dr. Victoria Lee, President and CEO of the Fraser Health Authority, has confirmed that there will be a COVID-19 vaccination clinic in North Delta in the coming weeks. This news provides equitable access to vaccine clinic locations for all Delta residents.
Harvie said: “I am very pleased and grateful that Fraser Health listened to us when we spoke up strongly for North Delta residents. It is absolutely essential that all Deltans, no matter where they live, have as easy access to vaccine clinics as possible. I have asked our staff to do everything possible to ensure whatever City facilities Fraser Health needs for vaccine clinics are available at a moment’s notice. When it’s your turn, I highly encourage everyone in the City to get the vaccine that is offered so we can move swiftly into our new post-pandemic world together.”
Currently, the only vaccine clinic available in Delta is the Delta COVID-19 testing and immunization centre, which is located at 4470 Clarence Taylor Crescent, beside City Hall.
Vaccine appointments are booked in advance and are being taken according to age. Beginning March 8, seniors 90 years or older, Indigenous individuals 65 years or older, and Indigenous Elders can book for appointments beginning March 15. This schedule continues in five-year age increments for the subsequent two weeks.
