Following the confirmation of the shipment of additional vaccine does in February, the Government of Yukon has set new vaccine clinic dates for Whitehorse residents. The clinic at the Convention Centre will reopen for first doses on Monday, February 22, 2021, for targeted groups.
The clinic will open to all Yukoners age 18 and older on Monday, March 1, 2021. Eligible residents are encouraged to book appointments in advance. Walk-ins will not be accommodated until Thursday, March 11, 2021. Appointments can be booked online at Yukon.ca/this-is-our-shot.
We are very pleased to be opening the clinic to all eligible residents of Whitehorse on March 1. Widespread immunization is our way out of this pandemic. A third of the territory has already received a first dose of the vaccine and this news will allow more Yukoners to step forward and roll up their sleeves. I encourage everyone to get vaccinated to protect themselves and their communities.
Minister of Health and Social Services Pauline Frost
