Vernon, welcome your newest walk-in clinic.

CareConnect I.D.A Pharmacy, located at 5301 25th Ave., is not only a pharmacy, but now offers walk in services for a doctor.

From Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m, Dr. Morgan Campbell will be accepting those in the community to drop in and get checked for whatever ailments they have. Campbell used to run a clinic in the Abbotsford area.
