Get vaccinated

All COVID-19 vaccines in Canada are effective and safe. The best vaccine is the one available to you. Provincial Health Officer (PHO) orders and guidelines remain in place for everyone, even if they are fully vaccinated. 

Register with the Get Vaccinated system

Everyone in B.C. must register with the Get Vaccinated provincial registration system once.

Get vaccinated People born in 2009 or earlier (12+) are eligible.

Second dose appointment invites are sent approximately 28 days after your first dose.


Vaccines in Canada

The COVID-19 vaccine is saving lives. Vaccines do more than protect the people getting vaccinated, they also protect everyone around them. The more people in a community who are immunized and protected from COVID-19, the harder it is for COVID-19 to spread.

The best source of COVID-19 vaccine information is the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC).

Approved vaccines

The COVID-19 vaccines that have been approved by Health Canada are safe, effective and will save lives. To date, four vaccines have been approved for use by Health Canada.

Safety

Health Canada has conducted a rigorous scientific review of the available medical evidence to assess the safety of the approved COVID-19 vaccines. Feeling worried or unsure is completely normal when something is new.

  • No major safety concerns have been identified in the data Health Canada reviewed
  • We can be reassured that Health Canada has a thorough approval process that makes sure the vaccines and medicines we take are safe

Supply

Vaccine supply is distributed by the Government of Canada and B.C. receives an allocated number of doses of vaccine on a weekly basis. 


Visiting long-term care or seniors' assisted living facilities

To fulfill the visitation guidance for long-term care and seniors' assisted living facilities, you must present proof of vaccination.
