Dear Sun Peaks Residents
We are receiving calls asking about the Sun Peaks vaccination clinic and specifically, if someone got a vaccine in Kamloops or elsewhere can they register in Sun Peaks for their ‘second’ vaccine.
The answer is no.
May 4-7 is a ‘Primary’ clinic intended for people who are getting their first vaccine. The government mandated a 4-month period between the first and second dose to ensure more (or hopefully all) people in BC can get vaccinated with at least one dose for now.
Secondly, there is not a lot of efficacy evidence for receiving 2 different vaccine variants.
Most people are getting the Pfizer vaccine in Kamloops and we will likely be giving the Moderna vaccine here.
I hope this helps to clarify things.
