Kílala Lelum Covid 19 Response
To Our Cherished Members and Community,
The destruction of the Covid-19 pandemic and ongoing toxic drug supply crisis has been far reaching and profound. While our community has been disproportionately impacted by both unfolding public health emergencies, we have watched our community stand together demonstrating unwavering resilience and kinship.
We are proud to walk alongside and meaningfully serve our members, with a heartful reminder that our doors remain open for primary clinical and cultural care.
Please visit or call our health centre if you would like to discuss new and ongoing healthcare concerns, manage postponed medical appointments, obtain covid-19 vaccinations and boosters, or pick up rapid take home tests and naloxone kits.
We will continue to monitor public health guidance, and provide updates and necessary supports to our community as needed.
All of Our Relations,
The Kilela Lelum Collective
