EDMONTON, AB – Another 60 community doctor clinics are being added to Alberta’s vaccination effort.

Twenty clinics across the province participated in a pilot in April, and now the program is being expanded.

Clinics will be supplied with the Moderna vaccine and doctors will be reaching out to eligible patients to book their shots.

“Our community physicians are a trusted source of information and are uniquely positioned to help patients understand the benefits of vaccination,” said Dr. Paul Boucher, president of the Alberta Medical Association. “I am confident that their expertise will help reach patients that might not otherwise seek to be vaccinated.”

The Alberta Government says this program will be expanded even further once vaccine supply increases.

To date, 2.6-million vaccines have been administered in this province through AHS, pharmacies and clinics.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
