Northern Health opening Skeena Mall vaccine clinic

Clinic opens Jan. 5, accepting booked appointments and walk-ins

Northern Health is adding a new convenient location for people in the Terrace area to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Starting Wednesday (Jan. 5), the health authority will be launching a vaccine clinic at Skeena Mall in a space located next to the Sportchek.

The clinic will be open to people aged five and older for both booked appointments and drop-in. Registration is required before booking an appointment, and Northern Health also recommends registering for drop-in visits.

Booster doses will be distributed at the site for people with appointments, or drop-ins with proof of eligibility.

The clinic will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursdays.

People can visit getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca or call 1-833-838-2323 to register to get vaccinated.
