(Island Health's Vax Van)

In an effort to make getting a COVID-19 vaccine easy and convenient, Island Health will be introducing a second Vax Van to bring vaccinations to island residents.

The van will first visit Uptown Centre on Saturday before moving to Mayfair Shopping Centre on Sunday and Nanaimo’s Woodgrove Centre on the holiday Monday. 

Anyone aged 12+ can visit the Vax Van to receive their first or second dose of their COVID-19 vaccine. 

Just make sure to bring your COVID-19 Immunization Record Card (for second doses) and your Personal Health Number card. 

Starting next week, temporary vaccine clinics will be set up at post-secondary campuses across Vancouver Island. Students, staff, and members of the public are all welcome to attend these clinics to receive their first or second dose.
