NTI walk-in vaccination clinic draws a crowd

Even before NTI’s walk-in vaccination clinic officially opened at 1 pm. on Wednesday, the line was already out the door and wrapped halfway down the length of Iqaluit’s curling rink. While the clinic is offering adult Iqaluit residents a chance to receive the Moderna vaccine, those lined up were the city’s youth—and their guardians—anxious to be among the first in the territory to get the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
