Apr 5 2021, 11:31 am

All eligible adults in BC will be able to book their vaccine appointments online beginning this week.

The provincial government announced Monday that starting Tuesday, April 6 at 8 am, those who are eligible will be able to book their vaccine appointment through the province’s new “Get Vaccinated” system online. This is in addition to being able to book by phone (1-833-838-2323) or in-person at the nearest Service BC location.

“We encourage everyone to get their vaccine at their first opportunity, when it is their turn,” said Health Minister Adrian Dix.

People can find out online when it is their turn to book and are asked to wait until their cohort is announced before registering “to preserve system capacity,” the province said.

“We have worked diligently and tirelessly to get this online registration, booking and tracking system ready for British Columbians,” said Dr. Penny Ballem, executive lead of BC’s COVID-19 immunization program.

According to the province, nearly 770,000 eligible British Columbians have received their first dose of vaccine, and more than 87,000 have received their second dose.
