CALGARY (660 NEWS) – As the ongoing battle with COVID-19 continues, Alberta Health Services (AHS) says two sites in the Calgary Zone will now focus on vaccination.

The two sites were used for testing, but AHS assures through Twitter that there will be no decrease in testing availability.

There will still be nine other COVID-19 testing centres within the Calgary Zone.

Those who have been working in the two sites will be kept on to support vaccination work.
