Beginning Saturday, May 1, the Whitehorse vaccine clinic will be reducing its operating hours. The clinic will be open Tuesday to Friday. Appointments are available and can be booked online or by phone. Drop-ins are also welcomed.
New drop-in hours are as follows:
- Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Wednesday from 12 to 6 p.m.
Vaccines will continue to be provided in rural communities through the community health centres. Residents can contact their health centre to find out more information.
More than 70 per cent of Yukoners have received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. At the peak, we were seeing hundreds of clients a day at the Whitehorse clinic. We are now able to scale down operations and focus some effort on other vaccinations, including pre-kindergarten and routine childhood vaccines.
Deputy Minister of Health and Social Services Stephen Samis
The clinic will not be open Saturday, May 1, or any following Saturdays.
