Interior Health In-school Vaccination Clinics Underway

Posted On Friday September 17, 2021

Kamloops-Thompson secondary schools in Chase, Clearwater, Barriere and Logan Lake will be the site for Interior Health’s in-school vaccination clinics beginning Thursday, Oc.t 7, 2021.

The clinics will provide access to COVID-19 vaccine for eligible students 12 years and older, teachers, staff, and community family members. Parents are welcome to accompany their child at the time of their vaccination. 

“We have worked with the Interior Health public health nurse manager and vaccination coordinator to prepare for hosting the vaccination clinics in schools,” said Dr. Rhonda Nixon, Superintendent, School District No. 73.  “Secondary schools hosting the clinics will be sending the parents and caregivers information from Interior Health.”

SD73 is working closely with Interior Health to ensure measures are in place to protect the health and safety of students and staff. Entrances and exits to the clinics will be through exterior doors and will be clearly marked, and all visitors to the clinic will need to follow the clinic’s health and safety guidelines.

“We pride ourselves on being partners with Public Health to support access to vaccinations,” said Rhonda Kershaw, Chair SD73 Board of Education. “We are pleased to continue this important role in keeping our communities safe.”

The rescheduled in-school vaccination clinic at South Kamloops Secondary will take place Friday, Oct. 1, 2021.
