AS part of the Province’s strategy to provide vaccine to people in high-transmission neighbourhoods, Fraser Health is now immunizing people ages 30 and over (born in 1991 or earlier) in nine additional neighbourhoods in the region where there are high rates of COVID-19 transmission to protect these individuals and their loved ones.
Fraser Health has also dropped the age requirement to ages 30 and over for all10 high-transmission neighbourhoods announced last month. Eligible people who live in these neighborhoods can register now on the Get Vaccinated website and will be immediately contacted to book their vaccine. Do not delay booking your appointment.
Now, Fraser Health has added the following nine high-transmission neighbourhoods:
- Surrey (Guildford, Cloverdale)
- Abbotsford (Central, East and Rural)
- Langley (Willoughby)
- Burnaby (Southeast, Southwest)
- South Mission
Fraser Health continues to immunize people in these 10 high-transmission neighbourhoods:
- Surrey (West Newton, East Newton, Whalley, Panorama, North Surrey, Fleetwood)
- North Delta
- Port Coquitlam
- South Langley township
- West Abbotsford
Priority immunization for people in high-transmission neighbourhoods is one part of Fraser Health’s strategy to manage COVID-19 transmission in the region. It is continuing with immunizing priority groups and locations where it is seeing outbreaks and clusters. By providing vaccine to these specific neighbourhoods, Fraser Health can protect more people and help prevent COVID-19 transmission in the communities.
Fraser Health says that while it remains critical that we continue following public health orders and guidance, registering for the COVID-19 vaccine helps put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us, and brings us one step closer to reconnecting with the people we care about the most and returning to the activities we enjoy, while protecting our health system and helping businesses in our community return to normal operations.
All vaccines that are approved in Canada and available in British Columbia are safe and effective, and will help protect you against COVID-19. Vaccines have been shown to have a high level of protection against serious illness and death, and every vaccine that is administered makes us, our loved ones, and our communities all safer.
