Vaccine Update

May 7, 2021: Almost two million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in B.C., many of them to health care workers who are providing critical services during this pandemic. Thank you for the work you do, and for stepping up to receive the vaccine that will help protect you, your patients, clients and residents, and the community.

Effective immediately, health care workers in the Vancouver Coastal Health region (including all Providence Health Care staff) will book vaccine appointments through the provincial booking system. The links we have previously used to book appointments for health care workers in our region to date are now discontinued.

Please note: instructions are different for people in need of a first or second dose, so please read the information below carefully.
