Yolanda Genu, Senior Communications Advisor for Central Zone said, “Presently in Vegreville, AHS is providing appointments for those eligible for the AstraZeneca/Covishield vaccine.

As we’ve previously shared, AHS has always had plans to offer an immunization clinic in Vegreville, and will be offering other COVID immunization products in the future as vaccine supply is available. Days and times of the clinics will vary, as they do across our rural immunization sites, by booked appointment.

“There are still some Covishield/AstraZeneca appointments remaining throughout the province and these appointments can only be booked through Health Link at 811. The Covishield/AstraZeneca vaccine is being offered at AHS immunization sites in each zone, however, some individuals will need to travel outside their home community if they choose this vaccine.

“We encourage anyone who is currently eligible for Covishield/AstraZeneca – Albertans born between 1957 and 1961 (inclusive) and First Nations, Inuit and Métis born between 1972 and 1976 (inclusive) – to book by calling Health Link.”
