Carrier Sekani Family Services (CSFS) is partnering with Northern Health for a COVID-19 and flu vaccination clinic Friday from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The clinic will be at CSFS’s main office in Prince George located at 987 – 4th Ave. (at the corner of Queensway and Fourth, across from the Plaza 400 building). Everyone ages 12 and up are able to attend and no appointment is necessary. Identification is required.
The first, second and booster shots of the COVID-19 vaccine will be available, as well as the annual flu shot. As the different vaccines do not interfere with each other, residents will be able to receive both the COVID-19 vaccine and the flu shot at the same time
- CSFS would like participants to keep in mind that a booster shot is different from a third dose:
- A third dose (NOT the booster) is currently only offered, with a physician recommendation, to those who are medically vulnerable
- Most people are getting the booster shot, which is a smaller dose of the COVID-19 vaccine meant to give your immune system a jumpstart.
- Everyone is eligible for the booster shot – however, only after a MINIMUM of six months after your second dose.
Both the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines will be available.
