EDMONTON – A new mobile vaccination clinic will be up and running in Alberta next week, aiming to help vaccinate people in hard-to-reach communities.

The province says this moile clinic will focus its vaccination campaign on rural communities, remote camps where vaccinations may be less accessible, places where uptake may be low, and other hard-to-reach areas of the province.

A coalition of businesses and the province came together to create the clinic.

“I know that this mobile clinic will become a valuable tool for our efforts in our province’s more remote areas. Every vaccination will help secure our province’s recovery,” said Health Minister Tyler Shandro in a release.

It’s anticipated that the clinic will be able to give out 300 shots a day.
