Due to the extreme heat wave that is currently impacting communities across our region, Fraser Health is implementing temporary measures at a number of our COVID-19 immunization and testing clinics as these sites are experiencing elevated temperatures.

These measures are important to protect the health and safety of our staff, medical staff, industry partners, and clients.

Starting Sunday, June 27th, anyone attending as a first dose walk in, or with booked appointments scheduled after 12:00 p.m. at the clinics listed below will be redirected to alternate clinics with cooler temperatures for immunization. COVID-19 testing at impacted sites will be available before noon each day. Testing and immunization will continue at affected clinics until 12:00 p.m. each day while temperatures remain cooler.

Anyone attending the affected clinics for testing after 12:00 p.m. will be redirected to either the Delta COVID-19 Testing and Immunization Centre or the Chilliwack COVID-19 Testing and Immunization Centre. Alternatively, they can choose to book an appointment for the following morning.
