B.C. residents born in 2003 and earlier can now register to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the province's vaccination website.
The province says more than a million people have received their first dose of vaccine.
Everyone born in 2003 and earlier and those who are “clinically extremely vulnerable” can already register to book their vaccine appointment online at gov.bc.ca/getvaccinated, through a call centre at 1-833-838-2323 or at a Services B.C. location.
Do not expect to book your vaccination appointment the same time you register. You will be contacted when you are eligible to book an appointment, which depends on your age, the phase of the province's COVID-19 Immunization Plan, and vaccine supply.
Booking invitations are currently being sent out to non-Indigenous people born in 1963 or earlier (58+), Indigenous people born in 2003 or earlier (18+), and people who are clinically extremely vulnerable.
The province’s age-based vaccination program runs parallel to its pharmacy program for people 30 and older. People getting their shots at pharmacies are receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine. For information on the pharmacy program, go to bcpharmacy.ca
