We are all eagerly awaiting news on the roll-out of a COVID vaccination program in BC. Seniors have been prioritized in the planning.
The latest information is available on the Government of BC website, address noted above.
Immunization clinics are being organized in 172 communities in B.C and will be overseen by your local health authority. The clinics will be held at large centres including:
- School gymnasiums
- Convention halls
- Community halls
- Mobile clinics in self-contained vehicles will be available for some rural communities and for people who are homebound due to mobility issues.
- Immunization clinics details will be available before Phase 3 of B.C.’s Immunization Plan.
Starting in mid-to-late February, Health Authorities will be reaching out to seniors aged 80 years and older, Indigenous seniors aged 65 years and older, and Indigenous Elders to provide information on how to pre-register for immunization appointments.
You can pre-register two to four weeks before you are eligible to reserve a vaccine appointment. Eligibility is based on your phase and age, working backwards in five year increments.
Pre-registration opens March 2021.
