Alberta's vaccination clinic on wheels rolls through Calgary, Edmonton and Jasper

A healthcare worker prepares a dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

Alberta's mobile vaccination clinic will be stopping in a number of locations this week, including Calgary and Edmonton.

The mobile clinic, which launched in July, is a joint effort between Alberta Health and a coalition of provincial businesses.

The hope is it will help people in rural Alberta and other hard-to-reach areas where vaccination rates are low have better access to a COVID-19 inoculation.

"While there are many ways for Albertans to get the jab, our mobile clinic takes the opportunity right to people where they work and gather," Minister of Health Tyler Shando said in a statement.

The clinic can provide up to 300 vaccinations a day.
