If you’re a British Columbian born in 1949 or earlier, you can now book your COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
At noon today (Thursday), the phone lines opened up for those 72-years and older to arrange to get their first shot.
This includes residents of Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.
However, those 55- to 65-years-old residing within the Vancouver Coastal or Fraser health regions can call a participating pharmacy to book their vaccination appointment anytime now.
Indigenous people in B.C. 18-years and up can also call to book their appointment, along with extremely clinically vulnerable people who’ve received a letter telling them they can book their shot.
To register for an appointment on Vancouver Island, call Island Health at 1 (833) 348-4787. If you’re on the Sunshine Coast, call Vancouver Coastal Health at 1 (877) 587-5767.
Call centres are open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm each day. However, keep in mind they’ll operate on reduced hours on Good Friday and Easter Monday, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Starting today (at noon) all people born in 1949 or earlier (72+) can book their appointments with their local health authorities.
