  • Fraser Health’s 32-hour Vax-a-thon this weekend is a red carpet event with music and entertainment-get your shot

Fraser Health will be rolling out the red carpet at our COVID-19 immunization clinic at Guildford Recreation Centre for our first-ever all-night Vax-a-thon. From 11:00 am on Saturday, June 19, to 7:00 pm on Sunday, June 20, approximately 7,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine will be available to eligible people needing their first dose.

Those who attend this special clinic will enjoy live music and other exciting, physically-distanced entertainment while receiving their COVID-19 immunization. They will also have a chance to receive generous donated door prizes.

The Fraser Health Vax-a-thon begins at 11:00 am on Saturday and transitions into an over-night Mask-erade around 8:00 pm. Dress to impress by wearing your fanciest mask or come as you are when you attend our nighttime immunization clinic. After receiving your first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, commemorate the moment by strutting down the red carpet and posing for a picture at our selfie station.

On Sunday, June 20, celebrate Father’s Day by receiving your COVID-19 vaccine – with a dad! Whether you are a dad or a friend of a dad, stop by our clinic for doses with dad day. While having your dose with a dad is fun, anyone eligible is welcome on this day.

Appointments are open to anyone 12 years and older for first dose COVID-19 immunization. Register and book in advance or same day appointments available while supplies last. All Fraser Health residents are welcome, including those without personal health numbers, vulnerable people and/or people who are not residents of B.C. 

Staff are available on-site to help people register and book appointments at other clinics throughout the region if needed, and can help answer all vaccine-related questions.

While it remains critical that we continue following public health orders and guidance, receiving COVID-19 vaccine helps put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us. It brings us one-step closer to reconnecting with the people we care about, returning to the activities we enjoy while protecting our health system and helping businesses in our community return to normal operations.
