Seventeen NWT communities will host more Covid-19 vaccine clinics in the next two weeks.

The clinics, most of which were announced on Friday, include appointments already available in Yellowknife for certain people to receive their required second dose of Moderna’s vaccine.

All of the clinics listed below will provide a second dose to residents who’ve already had their first dose, and a first dose to anyone aged 18 or over in the community who hasn’t yet received one.

Similar clinics have already taken place in almost all of the communities not listed below.
