SURREY Mayor Doug McCallum is asking everyone to get vaccinated when their turn comes up. Eligibility to book an appointment in McCallum’s age bracket came into effect on Tuesday. The Mayor promptly went online and scheduled an appointment for his immunization shot, which he received on Wednesday afternoon.
McCallum said: “The light in this long tunnel that we have been travelling in is getting brighter everyday. We can get there sooner if everyone gets vaccinated when it is their turn. I can assure you that booking an appointment was easy and fast through Fraser Health’s online process and that the shot I received today was done safely, quickly and virtually pain-free. Let’s stamp out COVID. Book your immunization shot as soon as your turn comes up.”
The City of Surrey is supporting Fraser Health’s mass immunization clinics by offering space at three Recreation Centres. Eligible residents can book vaccination appointments beginning March 29 for clinics at Cloverdale Recreation Centre and South Surrey Recreation and Arts Centre. Fraser Health is planning to open a third Surrey clinic at Guildford Recreation Centre and a date will be announced soon.
