Health experts are warning of a potential wave or an increase in COVID-19 cases this fall and winter. COVID-19 booster shots have been shown to provide additional protection against emerging variants and help reduce instances of severe infection, hospitalization and death.

Every Thursday and Friday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 to 4:15 p.m., Iqaluit Public Health will be holding a walk-in clinic offering COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters, until September 29. This is a walk-in clinic for all eligible Nunavummiut aged five and older.

Physical distancing, hand hygiene and enhanced cleaning practices will be in place to help keep everyone healthy. For the protection of yourself and the community, wear your own mask to your appointment.

The COVID-19 vaccine is Nunavut’s best protection against this virus, and all Nunavummiut are encouraged to be vaccinated as soon as they are eligible.
