The COVID-19 immunization clinics will be at the markets for August

Interior Health will continue hosting a drop-in immunization clinic at the farmers markets in Penticton and Summerland through August for anyone who has not yet received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, or anyone who received their first dose more than seven weeks (49 days) ago.
