All other clinics are operating on a drop-in basis.

On the date of each pop-up clinic, those eligible will have received a first dose of Pfizer at least 21 days ago; or received a first dose of Moderna at least 28 days ago and would like Pfizer as a second dose; or received a first dose of AstraZeneca at least 56 days ago and would like Pfizer as a second dose.

Residents are reminded to bring their health card (if you have one) and proof of address, such as driver’s license, bank statement or utility bill; proof of employment, such as work ID or pay-stub; or proof you attend a local school, such as student ID, report card, school letter or email.

However, even if you not have these documents, organizers are asking people who want to be vaccinated to still attend. “Our team will to their best to help you get vaccinated,” said a notice on the hospital’s website.
