Alberta Health Services said Wednesday that rapid flow COVID-19 vaccination clinics at the Expo Center and Calgary Telus Convention Center in Edmonton will close through the end of July.
The AHS said in a public service announcement, “The number of COVID-19 cases across the province is very low.”
“The demand for vaccination continues, however, given the increasing percentage of the immunized population, rapid flow clinics are no longer needed.”
Immunization services will continue to be provided in the coming months.
The vaccines Albertans want will be able to be immunized at public health centers, pharmacies and physician offices, among other places in both cities.
AHS said appointments are available with minimal wait times. To sign up, go to ahs.ca/covid. Vaccination appointments can also be booked through HealthLink at 811, as well as through local pharmacies and at physician’s offices.
