DUE to the extreme heat wave that is currently impacting communities across the region, Fraser Health is continuing with previously announced temporary measures at a number of its COVID-19 immunization and testing clinics as these sites are experiencing elevated temperatures. These measures will be in place until end of day on Tuesday, June 29, and are important to protect the health and safety of the staff, medical staff, industry partners, and clients.
Anyone attending as a first dose walk-in or with booked appointments scheduled after 12 p.m. at the clinics listed below will continue to be redirected to alternate clinics with cooler temperatures for immunization.

COVID-19 testing and immunization will continue at affected clinics until 12 p.m. while temperatures remain cooler. Anyone attending the affected clinics for testing after 12 p.m. will be redirected to either the Delta, Chilliwack or Hope COVID-19 Testing and Immunization Centres. Alternatively, they can choose to book an appointment for the following morning.
Update for Abbotsford Ag-Rec Centre Immunization Clinic:
Fraser Health has been able to accommodate some appointments at the Ag-Rec Immunization Clinic in a smaller air conditioned space within the Ag Rec. Fraser Health will notify everyone with a booked appointment if they are to attend Gateway Church or Ag-Rec for their appointment to ensure we honour all appointments.
People who wish to rebook their appointment can call 1-833-838-2323. Alternatively, people may walk-in to another location.
