(Update: As of August 10, BC is reducing the interval between the first and second vaccine to 28 days instead of 49.)
A reminder that that all BCIT staff, faculty, students, visitors, and contractors are now invited to drop-in to the BCIT Burnaby Campus Vaccination site for their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. No appointment, BC Personal Health Number, or registration required.
Additionally, I’m now pleased to announce that if you received your first dose of COVID-19 vaccine 28 days ago – you may also drop-in for your second dose at the Burnaby Campus Vaccination site. Second doses provided first come, first served for those eligible, as capacity allows.
Regardless of your regular health region or address, this site is open to you, your family, and friends (ages 12+) to drop-in for vaccines.
If the BCIT Burnaby Campus is not a convenient vaccine location – you may also walk-in to any Fraser Health Vaccine site. Find a location near you at fraserhealth.ca/vax.
The Burnaby Campus COVID-19 Testing and Immunization Centre is located in Lot B (entrance off Carey Avenue at Canada Way) and is open every day from 10:00 am – 5:30 pm. Both drive-through and walk-through services are available.
I thank the Fraser Health Authority for their continued work in BC’s COVID-19 recovery program and am proud that BCIT is able to lend our space to support the province’s vaccine delivery. I encourage all BCIT community members to take advantage of this convenient service and get your vaccine as soon as you are able.
If you have questions about the BCIT Burnaby Vaccination site, COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, or scheduling please call 1-888-COVID19 (1-888-268-4319) or visit fraserhealth.ca/vax.
