Booking Invitations

Provincial Registration Program

mRNA Dose 1: Ongoing for people born in 2009 or earlier (12+).

mRNA Dose 2: Invitations will be sent to people according to when they received their first dose - approximately 4 weeks after the first dose.

Pharmacy Program

AZ Dose 1: The B.C. Ministry of Health states that AstraZeneca vaccine may be administered as a 1st dose in two circumstances, since a documented referral is no longer mandatory:

-To individuals with a contraindication to the mRNA vaccines
-To individuals who refuse mRNA vaccines but without contraindication, who indicate that they will only be vaccinated against COVID-19 with AstraZeneca vaccine

AZ Dose 2: Pharmacies will contact people who came to their clinic for dose 1 approximately 4 weeks after the first dose. Search and book appointments:

Waiting to book?

If you are already registered and but have not received your first dose invitation, call 1-833-838-2323.

If you received your first dose before the registration program was in place (before mid-April) OR if you received your first dose through the pharmacy program, you need to register to receive your second dose (mRNA) invitation.

Second dose appointment invites are sent 8 weeks (mRNA + AZ) after your first dose. Log on to your Health Gateway to view the second dose forecasted date for a rough estimate.

If your forecasted date is overdue or due, you should receive a booking link within the next week.
