Northern Health has announced its ramping up its vaccination program. 

On Friday (March 26), the authority said it's adding more community-wide immunization clinics in select areas for people 18 years and older. 

As the provincial vaccine program also ramps up, Northern Health says regional residents that are born in 1947 or earlier (74 years old and later) and Indigenous peoples 55 years and older are able to call and book a vaccination. 

The authority is also reminding residents that once you're eligible, you're always eligible. 

Northern Health has already been immunizing 18-year-olds and older in other communities including Prince Rupert, Haida Gwaii, Stewart, Dease Lake, Granisle, Hazelton and Houston. 

The below communities are now being added to Northern Health's whole community plan. Residents should not call into book until their call-in date.

"The ‘whole community approach to vaccinating residents all at once is due to population size, remoteness, logistics, and/or accessibility," Northern Health says in a statement. 

"These can be expanded to address outbreaks, clusters or high population incidence rates." 

Northern Health's call centre is operating from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. 

To book an appointment, you are asked to call 1-844-255-7555. Clinic dates and locations will be confirmed at the time of booking. Residents are also being reminded to check Northern Health's COVID-19 information site for all updates on vaccinations.
