COVID VACCINE at present time

  • MODERNA  is  not available in town at this time – waiting on a shipment.  To book an appointment for same call Main Street Medical at 403-653-6030.  They will call you when a shipment comes in. Or talk to your local drugstore – they may be ordering it in.   If you need it now, there is Moderna at the Lethbridge Exhibition grounds – walk in clients are accepted.

AHS has a new booking system for certain vaccine appointments.  You will need to register the person and then book an appointment.   We are being told at this time, the 5-11 yr old will have to use this system to book in their COVID vaccines hopefully by mid-November.  Please take the time to register them now – it will speed up the booking process later. https://bookvaccine.alberta.ca/vaccine/s/
