Vaccine clinic to pop up at Playland this weekend

VANCOUVER, B.C. – After taking a spin on the AtmosFear and snacking on hot dogs and mini donuts, guests visiting Playland this Saturday can drop in to a Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) immunization clinic for COVID-19 vaccine. The one-day clinic — running from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 24 next to Playland's main entrance gate on Hastings Street — is the latest VCH clinic to take vaccine to meet people where they are, out enjoying the summer. No admission ticket to Playland is needed to access the clinic.

The clinic will welcome families and adolescents visiting Playland, as well as others in the neighbourhood who wish to drop in. First doses will be prioritized for anyone 12 and older, and if there is capacity at the clinic, second doses will also be available for those who received their first dose at least seven weeks ago (49 days).
