Island Health opens new COVID-19 immunization clinics in the Comox Valley

Island Health has established two new COVID-19 vaccination clinics in the Comox Valley.

The clinic that opened at the Florence Filberg Centre on July 1 will continue to operate, while a second clinic has also opened at 2488 Idiens Way in Courtenay.

Due to the challenges presented by the heat and temperatures inside the building, the Glacier Gardens clinic will not reopen.

People with previously booked appointments at Glacier Gardens up to July 18 should go to the Filberg Centre, even if they get a text or email reminder directing them to Glacier Gardens. Island Health is in the process of contacting people whose appointments were cancelled due to last week’s extreme heat-related clinic closures and have not yet re-booked. If you have not received a call and would like to reschedule, please call 1-833-838-2323 to book in.

Island Health is also aware that some people were recently not able to book appointments at a clinic in the Comox Valley online or over the phone. These issues have been resolved. Anyone who was unable to book is encouraged to try again and people who booked at a clinic in another community can re-book into a Comox Valley clinic.
