Island Health Vaccination information
Only call in at 1-833-348-4787, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily, when you’re eligible. If you miss your initial age-based window, you can call anytime after you become eligible. Eligibility is now for anyone 85 and older, or Indigenous 65 and older.
From today’s statement:
“For those who received their vaccine before the registration system was active in early April or at your local pharmacy, we ask you to take a few minutes to get registered today. If you are already registered, help your friends and family do the same.
“Our immunization program is rapidly accelerating, with age-based eligibility dropping almost daily. Starting later today, anyone 40 and older can book their vaccine. Additionally, anyone 18 and older who lives in one of the identified high-risk neighbourhoods can also book their vaccine.
“While we continue to accelerate our provincewide vaccine program, the foundation for all of us needs to be to continue to follow our COVID-19 safety basics: staying small and local, following all of public health measures and using our layers of protection – always.
“COVID-19 continues to spread in our communities, which means the risks remain high for all of us. We are not yet at the point where we can ease up on the restrictions we have in place, but we are getting closer every day.
“Understanding the progression of this pandemic and knowing the risks for our loved ones and ourselves is important for everyone.
“Through the daily statements, regular briefings, weekly BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) surveillance reports, COVID-19 epidemiology app and monthly data reports, public health data that meets provincial privacy requirements and standards is available for everyone.
“Just as we have been able to bend our curve, let’s also be the province that breaks all records for vaccine registrations.
“This week, during National Nursing Week, let’s celebrate the many nurses who have been on our front lines and working behind the scenes to keep our province safe. Registering is one easy way for you to honour our nurses and make a difference in our COVID-19 pandemic today.”
