“People getting immunized in Aldergrove will be served by TransLink’s air-conditioned Mobile Vaccine Bus, which will provide same-day COVID-19 immunizations to eligible people in a cool and comfortable location,” Fraser Health said in a statement.

Eligible community members will be offered same-day immunizations while vaccine supplies last.

All Fraser Health residents ages 12 and over are invited to get immunized, including those without personal health numbers and/or people who are not residents of British Columbia.
