NTHSSA will be delivering vaccine clinics for 12-17 year olds in Yellowknife schools on Wednesday, May 19th. A letter has gone to parents to inform on process and consent requirements.
Pfizer vaccine supply in the NWT is limited. We are fortunate to have received initial doses as Health Canada authorized use of the Pfizer vaccine for the 12-15 year olds during the school based outbreak in Yellowknife, and we are working to obtain more vaccine to be able to offer vaccine to all residents of NWT who are 12-17 years of age to receive at least one dose before the end of June, 2021.
Please be aware that due to the limited stock, these in-school clinic opportunities may result in the complete distribution of on-hand Pfizer vaccine. If any residents are unable to access vaccine in this round, there will be future opportunities. Planning for further Pfizer vaccine clinics is ongoing, and we will provide public updates as soon as details are available. Information on vaccination clinics in the NWT will be provided on nthssa.ca/newsroom, as well as updated through our social media pages.
