“On what is also the first day of summer, we encourage everyone to start your summer off right by ensuring you have your first dose if you have not already done so. Dose 1 drop-in clinics are open at a number of locations around the province,” said Dr. Bonnie Henry.
“In particular, as the school year comes to a close, we encourage all eligible youth, those 12 and older, to get your first dose before the summer holidays begin. This will allow you and your family to enjoy your summer even more, knowing you have protection from COVID-19,” she added.
