After the heat prompted Friday vaccine appointments at the Eagle Ridge Arena to be relocated, Island Health said the same will be done for anyone who was set to get their COVID-19 shot at the Langford site this weekend.
On Thursday, Island Health said anyone with a July 30 vaccine appointment at the Langford arena will instead get their shot at the air-conditioned Victoria Conference Centre.
In a Friday update, the health authority said anyone with a July 31 or Aug. 1 appointment at Eagle Ridge will now get their shot at the conference centre.
All appointment times will remain the same for those who were originally to get their jab at the arena.
Everyone affected by the relocated appointments will be contacted and notified, Island Health said, and anyone who receives a notification instructing them to go to Eagle Ridge on July 30, 31 or Aug. 1 should go to the Victoria Conference Centre instead.
“We are actively monitoring the conditions across our sites and will notify people of any further heat-related changes,” an Island Health bulletin said.
“We acknowledge this may be frustrating for some people and we ask for patience and understanding as we move through the effects of this weather event and plan to continue immunizations through the summer.”
