Starting next week students will be able to get vaccinated against COVID-19 at school-based clinics.

The clinics will be offered during school hours, and in some cases, they will operate outside of school hours for all members of the community.

Dr. Joss Reimer, Medical Lead for the Vaccine Implementation Task Force says a few clinics will launch on Wednesday the 22nd. 

"Parents and the school community will be notified when a clinic is coming to their school. We're sending letters out today to help give a bit more information about what the process will look like." 

School clinics are set to run for four to six weeks.
