Vaccine clinics will be popping up throughout the East Kootenay for those still needing a vaccine.

No appointments are necessary, so anyone living in the area that is eligible for a vaccine can walk in and receive a first or second dose.

Anyone born in 2009 or earlier is eligible for a vaccine and people can get their second dose four weeks after their first shot.

The B.C. government announced proof of vaccination will be required for most non-essential activities. A first dose will be needed by September 13th and a second dose will be required by October 24th.
