The clinic starts June 4 and is scheduled to last until June 26 at the community centre.

Revelstoke residents will be notified when they can get vaccinated through the provincial system via text or email. If individuals did not register for their first dose through the provincial booking system, Interior Health said it’s important to do so by going online or by calling 1-833-838-2323.
