UPDATE: Rutland and Summerland residents over 18 can now book vaccination appointments

(UPDATE: May 10 @ 4:15 pm) - Anyone aged 18 or up who lives in Rutland or Summerland can now book an appointment to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

Interior Health confirmed the news to NowMedia today, saying that all high-transmission neighbourhoods in BC are moving to 18 and up for vaccinations, as opposed to the 30 and up they were last week.

However, some “high-transmission” neighbourhoods and communities are being fast-tracked through the program, which is now the case of the District of Summerland and Kelowna’s Rutland neighbourhood.

Interior Health made the announcement today, stating that anyone born in 1991 or earlier in these two areas will soon be invited to book vaccine appointments if they’ve registered already.

“Notifications to book appointments will be sent to all registered residents based on their postal codes in Summerland and Rutland in the coming days,” explained a release from the health authority.

IH is encouraging everyone throughout the BC Interior to register for their vaccination as soon as possible so no one misses their earliest opportunity to book a vaccine appointment.

As of today, according to Health Minister Adrian Dix, 45% of eligible British Columbians have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
