The City of Castlegar’s mayor and council are encouraging the community to follow the direction of provincial health officials and roll up their sleeves to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

The Province of B.C.’s COVID-19 Immunization Plan is designed to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19.

“With cases in our community on the rise, we are asking residents to get vaccinated and stay safe from COVID-19,” says Mayor Kirk Duff. “Interior Health is making it easy by providing drop-in clinics at Selkirk College and Castlegar Health Centre and pop-up clinics at the farmers market, Millennium Park and businesses throughout the city.”

Castlegar residents can find the most up-to-date locations, dates and times for Interior Health clinics at interiorhealth.ca.

General vaccine information is available at gov.bc.ca/VaxForBC and British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC).

Mayor Duff and city council are also encouraging residents to continue following all provincial health orders and guidance.
