COVID19 clinics to operate in Surrey this week

  • COVID19 clinics to operate in Surrey this week

A new partnership between the Province, City of Surrey and Fraser Health is creating new opportunities for people in Surrey to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

“Our immunization efforts in Surrey are expanding rapidly, and we’re finding new ways to offer vaccines to people and protect communities against COVID-19,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “We’re making great progress, and we need to keep going. These new clinics will help us reach more people in Surrey and help them get immunized in a way that works for them.”

These additional vaccine clinics, with 4,000 additional doses of Pfizer/Moderna vaccine, will be available throughout Surrey for people 18 and older in the coming week (see dates and locations below).

“The City of Surrey is proud to be a part of the efforts to get more vaccines to people in Surrey who need them,” said Doug McCallum, mayor of Surrey. “By making vaccines as accessible as possible to as many of our residents as possible, we can make Surrey’s communities safer and protect ourselves and one another from COVID-19.”

Clinics this week complement the appointment-based clinics currently operating throughout the city and community partnerships at gurdwaras and mosques.

To avoid long waits for people, the first 1,000 Surrey residents to arrive on each day of the new clinics will receive wristbands from organizers and a same-day appointment.

Clinic staff will confirm ID to ensure vaccine priority is given to people living in Surrey. Staff will be available to help people register and book appointments at other clinics throughout Surrey if needed.

“These neighbourhood clinics play an important role in our strategy to immunize as many people as quickly as possible. It will protect our health system, keep your business open and help us get to community immunity,” said Dr. Victoria Lee, president and CEO, Fraser Health. “We are grateful to the City of Surrey and community organizations and leaders for their enthusiastic support for new opportunities to reach diverse populations.”

While these new clinics offer additional options over the next week for people in Surrey to get vaccinated, anyone who is eligible and 18 years and older can also get a vaccination appointment at any of the other clinics across the community by registering and booking through the provincial Get Vaccinated system:
