Virden pop-up clinics planned for June

Prairie Mountain Health has several pop-up clinics coming in June. These can provide the Pfizer vaccine for young people aged 12 to 15.

Vaccines require informed consent. A parent, guardian or caregiver can attend with the youth, or provide a signed consent form at the time of their appointment.

If the youth attends without a guardian and without a signed consent form, they will go through an informed consent process with a clinical lead to assess their ability to consent on their own and proceed with the vaccine.

Moderna clinic's first dose eligibility is 18 years and older.

Criteria for second dose inoculations changes frequently, says the PMH bulletin. Please visit https://protectmb.ca/ for most up to date information.

In Virden, the Pfizer clinics are June 9 and 28, at Tundra Oil & Gas Place, 900, 5th Ave. N. between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m.

A Moderna clinic will be held at TOGP on June 23.
