Edmonton Expo Centre to open as COVID-19 vaccination site

Premier Jason Kenney said the province is in the process of setting up several rapid flow-through vaccination clinics this week in Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray, Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, Medicine Hat and Lethbridge.

 

The Edmonton Expo Centre will soon open as a mass COVID-19 vaccination site.

On Wednesday morning, Edmonton city manager Andre Corbould told councillors that AHS would be making an announcement soon.

The 522,000-square-foot facility is the largest conference centre in Western Canada, allowing thousands of residents to be vaccinated daily.

Alberta is currently in Phase 2B of the vaccine rollout, allowing for those between the ages of 16 and 64 with eligible underlying health conditions to book their first shot. As of Monday, 734,403 vaccine doses have been distributed across the province.
