In celebration of the Walk-In Wednesday vaccination effort, the Tournament Capital Centre in Kamloops will be home to live entertainment, therapy dogs and smoothies.
During the provincewide walk-in-Wednesday, anyone across the province can walk into any COVID-19 immunization clinic without an appointment and receive their first or second (49-plus days from the first dose) shot.
Tournament Capital Centre in Kamloops will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the Walk-In Wednesday event.
A brass band made up of members of Beyond Brass and calling themselves the Safe Sectionals during the pandemic will be performing, beginning at 11 a.m., to celebrate the city’s vaccination progress and further encourage fellow Kamloopsians to walk in or dance in for their first or second dose.
Therapy dogs from St John Ambulance will be on site from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for anyone who needs support getting their vaccination — or for anyone who just loves dogs.
The City of Kamloops will also hand out coupons for free smoothies for the first 100 people who get their vaccinations during Walk-In Wednesday at the Tournament Capital Centre.
Ongoing immunization clinics
People can also get their first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by dropping in to an immunization clinic or by making an appointment.
To make an appointment, register online by visiting the provincial website at www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca/, call 1‑833‑838‑2323, or visit a Service BC office (in Kamloops in the Kamloops Law Courts building, downtown at Columbia Street and Fourth Avenue) and then book an appointment.
