Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, our BCIT community has been providing critical support to sectors that safeguard our health, well-being, and economic recovery. In our latest efforts to support the province in its COVID-19 vaccination rollout, BCIT is providing space on our Burnaby Campus for the Fraser Health Authority to deliver drive-through COVID-19 immunizations and testing.
BCIT is lending the use of Parking Lot B and part of Lot 7, while the Fraser Health Authority is responsible for the installation, equipment, staffing, vaccination delivery, and ongoing logistics of the site.
The Fraser Health Authority anticipates that this site will be up and running by April 19 to serve area residents. So, if you happen to live in Burnaby, you just might find yourself here at BCIT for your vaccine when your age group or cohort is scheduled.
This is just one more way BCIT is helping with BC’s COVID recovery program. We have had much to be proud of through the pandemic – from donating PPE, to safely returning students to campus to achieve their credential, to accessible training that supports front-line healthcare workers, and much more.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to everyone across the BCIT community—especially the Facilities and Campus Development team—for making this possible.
Thanks for all you do. Stay safe and well.
