Alberta and Montana partner to provide vaccines to truckers

About 2,000 Alberta truck drivers are eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19 under a new program, starting May 10, 2021.

Announced today, the program was developed through a collaboration between Alberta and Montana. It allows truckers regulated to transport goods into the United States to receive the Janssen vaccine at a rest stop near Conrad at no cost.

“We are very grateful to Montana Governor Gianforte for the generous donation of vaccines to protect our truckers,” said Premier Jason Kenney. “Alberta depends on trade with our American neighbours and this program will ensure our goods get to market while stopping the spike of COVID-19.

“The pandemic has had devastating consequences, including a severe impact on our economies,” said Greg Gianforte, Governor of Montana. “By working together and taking this critical action, we keep our trade channels open between Montana and Alberta.”

The service will be available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily until May 23, 2021. Truck drivers are not required to book ahead to receive the vaccinations.
