Here’s where Alberta’s mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic on wheels is heading this week

The clinic — located inside a large bus — focuses on people in rural communities, hard-to-reach populations, worksites and other locations where vaccine uptake is low. It is capable of providing up to 300 vaccinations per day.

“Vaccines offer the best protection from COVID-19,” said Health Minister Tyler Shandro in a news release Monday morning.

“While there are many ways for Albertans to get the jab, our mobile clinic takes the opportunity right to people where they work and gather.”
