The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) will hold a second- dose Moderna vaccine clinic in Prince George this week to ensure Indigenous people living away from home have access to the life-saving immunization in a culturally safe and welcoming environment.
All are invited to attend the clinic at the House of Ancestors, located at 355 Vancouver Street, on July 21 and July 22 from 9:30am – 5:30pm.
Our own First Nations doctors are urging everyone to get a second dose vaccine as soon as possible because of the strong protection it offers against the COVID-19 virus and the variants that are responsible for a new wave of cases across the world.
“The sooner we all have our two shots, the safer we will all be,” said Julie Morrison, FNHA Acting Vice-President for Regional Operations. “We owe it to ourselves, our families and our communities to make the right choice. Your vaccine is waiting for you.”
Please join us for a blessing ceremony at 9 am each day.
In two rounds of vaccinations, the First Nations Health Authority’s Northern Region has supported over 150 vaccination clinics in 55 communities and 3 Urban and Away from Home Dose 1 clinics in Prince George, Terrace and Fort St. John.
These community clinics have provided 12,445 Dose 1 vaccines and 9,954 Dose 2 vaccines.
