Surrey's 9 high transmission neighbourhoods prioritize vaccination

Darpan News Desk Fraser Health, 07 May, 2021 03:07 AM
  • Surrey's 9 high transmission neighbourhoods prioritize vaccination

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 our region where we are seeing high rates of COVID-19 transmission, to protect these individuals and their loved ones.

We have also dropped the age requirement to ages 30 and over for all ten 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. Please do not delay booking your appointment.

Today, we are adding the following nine high-transmission neighbourhoods:

  • Surrey (Guildford, Cloverdale)

  • Abbotsford (Central, East and Rural)

  • Langley (Willoughby)

  • Burnaby (Southeast, Southwest)

  • South Mission

We continue 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 our strategy to manage COVID-19 transmission in our region. 

Vancouver Coastal Health has also added its list of high transmission neighborhoods where people 30 and over can register to get their shot.
