A variety of clinics are popping up in the Peace region over the next few weeks as the Province encourages more residents to get vaccinated.

Last week, the Province announced its Vax for BC campaign, aiming to provide B.C. residents with more opportunities to get their first and second COVID-19 vaccine dose.

According to the BC CDC vaccine coverage map, around 55 per cent of residents 12 and older in northeast B.C. have received their first dose, and 40 per cent for the second dose.

The vaccine rate for adults in the northeast is 56 per cent for the first dose and 45 per cent for the second dose. The vaccine rate for northeast B.C. residents aged 50 and older is at 70 per cent for the first dose and around 61 per cent for the second dose.

On Wednesday, clinics across the province set aside 20,000 doses for the first provincewide mass walk-in event for anyone 12 years and older looking to get their first or second dose.

In the Northern Health region, 300,815 vaccine doses have been administered, and 6.9 million doses across the province.
